Members of the Michigan Legislative Dutch Caucus, comprised of nine State Senators and seven State Representatives, met with key members of the WMGI Feb. 21, to discuss the group’s efforts and future events.

The meeting was also attended by Klaas van der Tempel, the Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

"This was an excellent opportunity to gather key legislators and dignitaries to discuss their involvement in the WMGI’s mission," said WMGI Co-Founder and Executive Committee member Jeb Burns. "With their support, we can achieve our mission of fostering long-term business, civic, and cultural relationships between the West Michigan region and The Netherlands."
