MiCPAC is Michigan’s premier annual gathering for principled patriots and conservatives. This conference gets results. Task forces on Education, Property Rights, Legislative and judicial accountability, this is where the grass roots kicked off the Freedom To Work campaign.
At MiCPAC we bridge and network.all elements of the conservative movement – limited government; tax limitation; Life; faith; evangelicals; Tea Party; Constitutional; tax limitation, home schoolers, 1st, 2nd & 10th Amendments; traditionalists; National security; Labor Freedom as we continue the work of the Founders to preserve a constitutional republic for the next generations.
We keep the faith AND, we recruit, educate, train, inspire and enable grass roots leaders, candidates, campaign workers.
Be all you can be in theology, philosophy, public policies and politics by this conference with fellow believers and leaders in academia, think tanks, business, labor and grass roots activism. This year we are also adding several youth leaders of tomorrow!
We have new breath in President Trump and the Trump Administration, and new challenges with a feckless and challenged Republican Party, and a ruling left-wing Democrat Party. This Conference will be pivotal for We The People. Be there!
