Join Leadership Oakland and Leadership Macomb on April 29, 2009, as Philip Power informs, challenges and inspires his audience to consider the potential that lies ahead for the great state of Michigan and then take action to propel our state forward!
For nearly forty years Philip Power was founder, owner and chair of HomeTown Communications Network, Inc. best known in SE Michigan for the Observer and Eccentric Newspapers. He also served for 11 years as a Regent for the University of Michigan. In 2006, Power founded “The Center for Michigan,” a think and do tank aimed at improving the policy and political environment in Michigan by developing a series of far reaching, broadly acceptable reforms in taxing, spending and the priorities of state government. His support for this across the state is impressive. He currently serves as Vice Chair of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation where he chairs the Finance Committee.
