The 2012 annual meeting of the Michigan Political Science Association (formerly the Michigan Conference of Political Scientists) will take place October 4-5, 2012 in the Walker Cisler Student and Conference Center on the campus of Lake Superior State University (LSSU) in Sault Ste. Marie. 

Arthur Lupia, University of Michigan, will be the banquet keynote speaker on Thursday night.  Bill Ballenger, Inside Michigan Politics, will be luncheon plenary speaker on Friday.  We hope to host an exciting Campaign 2012 event on Friday night.

This will be the first time the association has met in the city where Michigan may be said to have been born.  With the fall color season likely to be at its peak in beautiful northern Michigan, this is a wonderful opportunity to combine a professional conference with a recreational trip.  The region’s many and diverse recreational opportunities are detailed under “Attractions” in the menu. 

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a great conference.  We also hope you will be able to stay for the weekend and enjoy the attractions of our beautiful and historic region.

Gary Johnson
Professor of Political Science, LSSU
President-Elect, MIPSA
