Release date: 4/30/2012
The Cities of Farmington Hills and Farmington will host a Millennial Mixer on Thursday, May 24 from 7:00pm to 9:30pm in the Council Chambers at Farmington Hills City Hall, located at 31555 Eleven Mile Road. The free networking event for 21 to 35-year-old residents of Farmington Hills and Farmington will feature keynote speaker Dan Gilmartin, Executive Director and CEO of the Michigan Municipal League.
The Cities are hosting the forum in partnership with the Millennial Mayors Congress (MMC), an alliance of city officials and rising leaders working together to address regional challenges in metro Detroit. Established in 2009, the group represents a broad network of young people who work in cities, nonprofits, businesses, and universities all across metro Detroit.
The Millennial Mixer will give young leaders a chance to have a voice in local government and offer their input to city officials. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and discuss relevant topics based on the MMC’s Millennial Vision for Metro Detroit. Discussion topics will include the economy, vibrant places, transportation, education, government, and the environment.
Farmington Hills and Farmington were founding members of the Millennial Mayors Congress and have an active interest in involving Millennials in decisions impacting the region. “We want to engage the next generation of leaders and get their input,” said Farmington Hills Mayor Barry Brickner. “I look forward to the open sharing of ideas and visions for the future.”
The Millennial Mixer will offer beer, wine, and small plates-style appetizers served in the City Hall Gallery. Attendees will also have the chance to win gift certificates to various local restaurants and businesses. For more information or to RSVP by May 18, go to www.millennialmayors.org or www.fhgov.com.
