Tip of the Mitten Affiliate

MiAA Tip of the Mitten Affiliate Logo

The MiAA Tip of the Mitten affiliate services 5 northern counties (Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, Otsego, Presque Isle) of Michigan’s lower peninsula. The committee works with the home office to find support for and service our artist-in-residence programs for special education students in the region’s schools, and to train artists to work in these programs.

Our affiliates are always looking for:

  • Volunteers
  • People with talent in all art forms
  • Passionate people to serve on the affiliate committee
  • Individual donors and corporate sponsors

Contact our Affiliate Committee Chairperson, Susan Erickson, for more information at susane@copesd.org
