The Michigan Institute of Laundering and Drycleaning will be heading to Harbor Springs for

meeting and a welcome reception.
On Saturday, Nora Nealis, executive director of the National Cleaners Association, will
deliver a keynote address.
Her presentation will offer advice on what cleaners can do to succeed, from a look at
industry disruptors, to fashion trends that demand more than traditional drycleaning, to
opportunities for growth. She will also discuss millennial behavior and explore drycleaning
service enhancements, apps and other “hooks” that appeal to millennials.
Then, golf lovers can enjoy a nine-hole outing before the evening concludes with a MILD
President’s Reception and Awards Dinner.
On Sunday, the audience can hear from a panel of solvent users.
The cost of registration for the conference is $250 for members, then $75 for an adult
