Henry Wolf joined the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance as our new Director of Government Relations. 
“Henry offers an impressive depth of understanding on the issues that are most critical to northern Michigan businesses, including attracting a talented workforce, supporting the ongoing success of our region’s businesses, and maximizing competitiveness at the state, national, and international level,” said Stacie Bytwork, chair of the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance.
Wolf has spent his career working in Michigan legislative offices for State senators and representatives, in addition to serving in central staff for the Michigan House of Representatives. Wolf is a graduate of Central Michigan University and will be relocating to the Grand Traverse region from East Lansing.

We are excited to have him on the team!
The Michigan Chamber, along with our coalition, the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance, Traverse Connect, Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Petoskey, and Saginaw Chambers, announced a “Listen to MI Business campaign and coalition asking President Biden and the federal OSHA to reconsider the vaccine mandate.

This campaign/coalition isn’t about being anti-vaccine. Rather, it’s about being opposed to one-size-fits-all government mandates that create unintended consequences for employers and employees alike. 

Our businesses and employees should be trusted to work together to determine the best course of action, along with HR policies that fit and work for them. 

The primary goal of this campaign is to raise awareness of the real and unintended consequences associated with this unprecedented mandate on the business community and to give our collective members an outlet to make their voices heard.

This effort will be run similar to the “Reopen Michigan Safely” campaign that we supported, which was aimed at ending the office ban and lifting the MIOSHA Emergency Rules.

Get involved and have your voice heard!

  • Are you a business leader who is willing to speak to the press! We are looking for business people who are willing to tell their stories about how the vaccine mandate will impact their operations and employee

  • Send an email! Visit the coalition website to send an email making your voice heard on this issue in Washington DC. 

The Alliance exists to advocate for rural northern Michigan and move forward rural-centric business policy.
