STEPHENSON, Mich. Feb. 21, 2018 Dr. Tawni Hunt Ferrarini, a Professor of Economics, is seeking community participation in a series of focus groups that will be tasked with capturing their views and opinions on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of mining in and around Menominee County.

Dr. Ferrarini is looking for participation from people who fall between the two extreme views on mining and the community, and who come from different economic, political, social, and cultural backgrounds.

The goal is to capture data from local people, therefore participants are asked to attend a session in their immediate community.

The results from the focus groups will be analyzed by Dr. Ferrarini and an executive summary will be made available to the public.

The focus groups will take place between Saturday, March 10 and Friday, March 16, 2018. A complete list of dates, locations, and times can be found by clicking the registration button below. Registration is required to attend.
