What's in a Name?
The Great Lakes State Chapter
Since 1979, we have been rooted in SE Michigan as the Detroit Chapter.
Today, we continue to serve metropolitan Detroit, but have expanded
our reach and influence throughout Michigan. Our new name conveys our
broad outreach and committment to the members, companies, and communities
we collaborate with in the Great Lakes State.
Help spread the word! Our name has changed, but the Great Lakes
State Chapter is still dedicated to its mission of providing relevant
professional education, certification opportunities and professional
networking to its members.
We extend an invitation to you to join our team
