At MEDC we work to transform the Michigan economy by growing and attracting business, keeping talented residents here and revitalizing our urban centers.

MEDC BOARD

The MEDC Board was established through the Interlocal Agreement that established the MEDC. Article VII of the Amended and Restated Interlocal Agreement between the Michigan Strategic Fund and participating public agencies established the MEDC Board. The Board includes representatives appointed by MEDC’s Interlocal partners, as well as the twenty members of the MEDC Executive Committee.

MICHIGAN STRATEGIC FUND

The Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF), which oversees state economic development strategies, is an autonomous entity established by PA 270 of 1984. An 11-member board has statutory authority to direct state appropriations to support business development, community development, talent enhancement and state marketing activities, including the promotion of tourism, film industry, arts and cultural affairs.

GOVERNOR'S TALENT INVESTMENT BOARD

The Governor’s Talent Investment Board (GTIB) is Michigan’s workforce investment board and its representation is consistent with the provisions of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and regulations issued pursuant to the act. The GTIB provides a vital role in bringing citizen involvement, engagement, and oversight to the state’s talent enhancement effort.

COMMISSION FOR LOGISTICS AND SUPPLY CHAIN COLLABORATION

The purpose of the Commission for Logistics and Supply Chain Collaboration is to advise state agencies on initiatives to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of supply chain management for businesses. Further, the commission aims to create avenues of communication with the Province of Ontario, Canadian federal governmental agencies along with U.S. state, regional, and local governments. The commission identifies industries that can benefit from supply chain coordination, and offer guidance on how Michigan can maintain a competitive advantage in economic development, trade and commerce, and transportation. The 10-member commission represents private business, transportation, border operators, local economic development agencies, and higher education.
