Connect Marquette is excited to continue our monthly (1 hour) Lunch With Leaders series, bringing together both members and non-members interested in the unique perspective of each month's guest.
We offer an accessible setting to get to know, learn, and discuss relevant topics that fit our mission; being an instrumental part of the long-term success of individuals in Marquette County through collaboration, inclusiveness, innovation, and the U.P. work ethic. This is a great opportunity to get to know our guest in a small-group format!
Our August 26 conversation is with Marty Fittante, who is the Chief Executive Officer for InvestUP. He is the former chief of staff for Michigan State Senator Tom Casperson, and his legislative works spans numerous industries, including forestry, mining, and health care. He was previously external affairs director for the House Policy Office, a position that he held after serving as legislative director during Senator Casperson’s terms in the Michigan House of Representatives. As a policy advisor, he managed three statewide task forces that addressed job creation, education, and agriculture. Marty and his wife Lisa also own an accounting firm in Iron Mountain that serves small and medium sized businesses.
This Lunch With Leaders meeting will be hosted through Zoom. So take this opportunity to get to know a bit more about the local economic (and legislative) landscape and one of the people leading the way. Grab your computer, take a break, grab a bite and spend your lunch with us!
Registration will be available until shortly before the start of the program. Registrants will receive a follow-up email with information on how to join the discussion.
Each month, Connect Marquette will feature a guest speaker in an informal lunch setting (up to 10 guests). Organized topics at different venues in downtown Marquette (when such meetings are again possible) will be announced ahead of time. The topic will be selected by the featured speaker, and a few topics can be suggested by the organization ahead of time for preparation.
