JW Marriott

The JW Marriott Grand Rapids is considered a world-class hotel for both business and pleasure. Among the uncommon amenities, each private retreat has wireless Internet access, a 42″ flat screen TV and luxurious bedding. Inspired dining at the JW’s signature restaurant, and a stylish cosmopolitan lounge, mixology, rounds out the hotel’s plush conveniences.




The health and safety of all symposium attendees is a top priority, and we are taking steps to ensure a safe environment. Masks will be available at registration and hand washing facilities and/or sanitizing systems easily accessible to everyone throughout the event. Attendance will be limited, and event set-up will be spread out to accommodate social distancing as much as possible.

Fifth-Third Ballpark

All registered attendees are invited to our annual reception at Fifth-Third Ballpark (sponsored by MECA Associate Members.) This highly-attended event provides a key opportunity to network with managers, staff and decision-makers from Michigan’s electric co-ops and associate members. There isn’t a baseball game scheduled, but weather permitting there will be lawn games (corn hole, ladder ball, etc). Complimentary transportation from the JW Marriott, stadium food and beverages are all provided.
