Meet Our New Executive Director

By March 22, 2018Newsletter

Erica BriggsScenic Michigan’s board is excited to introduce our new executive director. In January, we hired Erica Briggs to lead Scenic Michigan. Erica worked closed with outgoing director Abby Dart to ensure a smooth transition in organizational leadership. We thank Abby for her years of service to Scenic Michigan and hope you will join with us in welcoming Erica to the Scenic Michigan family.

Erica comes to Scenic Michigan with an extensive background in nonprofit management, transportation and land use policy, communications, legislative affairs, and policy analysis. Her background is a great fit with Scenic Michigan’s needs and many of the goals our board identified in our recent strategic planning process.

As one of her first tasks, Erica has embarked on a listening tour to learn how Scenic Michigan can strengthen past partnerships and build new ones to advance our mission. In addition to meeting with organizational partners, she is interested in reaching out to current and past members to hear your ideas. However, one of her challenges in doing this is that we’ve realized we don’t have email addresses or phone numbers for most of you. Sending out paper mailings is both expensive and time consuming. If you’ve received this mailing, we implore you to take a moment to go to our website ( and fill out the contact form prominently featured on our homepage (click the green button below our photo banner that says “Sign Up!”). Or, if you prefer, feel free to call us at 231-725-8116. We look forward to hearing from you soon. – Jim Lagowski
