The 2019 MAEOE Conference will be held at the beautiful Kettunen Center near Tustin, MI.  The Kettunen Center is owned and operated by the 4-H Foundation and is affiliated with Michigan State University. Its 153 acres of rolling hills and beautiful lakefront provide the perfect backdrop for MAEOE’s annual conference.

Unlike the past several years in which MAEOE conferences were held in urban venues and participants were required to find and pay for their own lodging and most of their meals, the Kettunen Center is a self-contained campus.

*All meals, Friday lunch through Sunday breakfast (6 total) are included in your full registration fee!  This includes Friday evening’s annual MAEOE MASH and the Awards Banquet on Saturday evening. *
