LEGISLATIVE AND GOVERNMENTAL ISSUES
MSIA keeps abreast of legislative issues that affect our industry and notifies members when action is needed. MSIA retains the respected lobbying firm Muchmore, Harrington Smalley & Associates to represent our interests. Furthermore, MSIA’s Executive Director Mickey MacWilliams, sits on numerous Michigan travel and tourism boards and committees, is a registered lobbyist and is your voice regarding snowsports issues.
By retaining a lobbying firm we have become proactive and able to deal with potential bills before they become law. To pay for this, we ask all members to contribute to MSIA's lobbying fund in the following manner:
• Ski Shops, Ski Representatives and Associate Members: $100 each
• Ski Areas: One penny for every lift ticket sold during the previous season, with a minimum contribution of $400.
If you don't feel that you can contribute at the levels we suggest, then please contribute the amount that you feel comfortable giving. You may select your donation amount once you click on the button below.
Thank you for helping us help the industry!
