The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) will host its 46th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) on September 14-18, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. ALC is the leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans. The conference provides an important platform for thought leaders, legislators and concerned citizens to engage on issues critical to the global black community. Historically, over 9,000 conference attendees attend ALC and other related events. We encourage you to join with other subject-matter experts, industry leaders, elected officials and citizen activists to explore relevant issues from an African-American perspective. Online registrations will be accepted through Sept. 12 at www.CBCFinc.org/alc.
Annually, ALC draws a large contingent of attendees from the State of Michigan. In an effort to enhance the experience of Michiganders attending the conference, a group of businesses (then led by DTE Energy, Consumers Energy & the Big Three Automakers) joined with members of Michigan’s Congressional Delegation to host the first Michigan Motown Celebration in 1999. This social and networking event has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated and attended events during Congressional Black Caucus weekend. The 2016 Michigan CBC Delegation Reception & Motown Live Afterglow continues this great tradition. The event will be held on Friday, September 16, 2016 at the Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater.
The esteemed Honored Guests for the evening will include: U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Senator Gary Peters, U.S. Congressman John Conyers, Jr., and U.S. Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, along with, other members of Michigan’s Congressional Delegation and the Congressional Black Caucus. Also in attendance will be state and local elected leaders from Michigan, as well as, other luminaries of politics and business from across the nation. The Michigan CBC Host Committee is pleased to announce that it will honor the following group of distinguished business and political leaders: U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow - John Conyers, Jr. Public Service Award; Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony - Champion of Justice Award; AT&T - Distinguished Corporate Citizen Award; Paula D. Cunningham - Trailblazer Award; Dr. Patricia Maryland - Chairman’s Pinnacle Award; and Hon. Dr. Alma G. Stallworth - Community Leadership Award.
The Michigan CBC Delegation Reception & Motown Live Afterglow is one of CBC Weekend’s most sought after tickets. Last year’s event was attended by over one thousand guests. This year will be no exception, as we have secured a historic Washington, D.C. venue and will provide the first-class amenities our guests have come to expect.
