Hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber, the iconic Mackinac Policy Conference will be held in person this fall to focus on critical regional issues of government, policy and economics. Though the conference will have a different look and feel, attendees will include some of Michigan’s most influential leaders from across the state.

DPTV’s 10th year of live coverage on the island will take place between September 21 – 23, 2021. DPTV will provide access to nearly all of the Conference’s sessions live and will also make them available for on-demand viewing.  

The 2021 Mackinac Policy Conference  will explore three pillars for reimagining a healthy Michigan.


Accelerate our COVID-19 economic recovery and sustainability.


Advance racial justice and equity for all.


Invest in the health of people and communities.

In 2020, when the in-person Mackinac Policy Conference was cancelled, DPTV and the Detroit Regional Chamber created a series of digital events to provide an opportunity for meaningful discussions around the important issues facing Michigan.
