Solicitation Policy

Solicitation of Conference attendees in an effort to fundraise or sell any idea, product, service, venture, cause or action, however worthy or potentially of value to the solicited member, is prohibited while on Grand Hotel property. While much of the Conference’s value comes from its networking capability, and while we do not intend to interfere with that benefit, the Chamber has received many requests for such a policy from regular Conference attendees. Persons violating this policy will be dealt with immediately and could be excluded from the Conference immediately and in the future.

The Chamber controls the distribution of “Conference sanctioned materials” throughout the Grand Hotel and other Conference venues. Distribution of other materials is strictly prohibited. No attendee or organization (company, entity, media outlet , political campaign) can distribute materials, publications, post cards, other items or gifts on Grand Hotel property (including main Conference venue and other facilities owned and operated by Grand Hotel) and Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry facilities. If non-sanctioned materials are found, Conference staff are instructed to remove and dispose the materials from premises. Individuals distributing materials will be dealt with immediately and could be excluded from the Conference immediately and in the future.
