Event for Michigan smart home professionals is the latest in CEDIA’s advocacy expansion
FISHERS, Ind. (Oct. 3, 2023) — CEDIA, the association for smart home professionals™, is set to host the CEDIA Legislative Day at the Michigan State Capitol on Oct. 18. The event will emphasize the importance of skilled trades in Michigan and the need for a proper regulatory environment to support the smart home technology industry. Michigan integrators will be joined by CEDIA’s leadership to explain to policymakers the essential work of the industry.
The effort is the first in-person state lobby day, and is part of an ongoing ramp up of CEDIA’s government affairs program that also includes recruitment of statewide leaders and an upcoming planned advocacy day in Washington, D.C.
The association is urging CEDIA members and other residential technology professionals in the state of Michigan to collectively amplify their voice by attending the CEDIA Legislative Day:
DATE: Oct. 18, 2023
LOCATION: Michigan State Capitol, 100 N. Capitol Ave Lansing, MI 48933
TIME: 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
CEDIA members will meet with members of the legislature and executive branch. During a special lunchtime session, CEDIA leaders and Senator Mark Huizenga will offer remarks and insights on home technology policy. The day will conclude with a closing session at the Michigan Legislative Consultants offices.
“People often say that it’s important to know who your legislators are, but it’s even more important that they know who you are,” said Daryl Friedman, CEDIA Global President and CEO. “When you build relationships with leaders in Michigan, your visits and communications have a far greater impact on issues that matter to you and your business.”
