Terri Trotter Accepts New Position, Returns Home to Arkansas

After six years of inspired leadership, President and CEO Terri Trotter has accepted a new position and will be returning to her longtime home of Arkansas. We are grateful to Terri for the outstanding and lasting mark she has made on our organization, our Midland community and our Great Lakes Bay region. Our board will launch a national search for her replacement.

Planning for a Safe Return

Masks are Currently Required Inside Midland Center

As we welcome back patrons for our 50th Anniversary Celebration Season, we are all doing our part to create a safe environment for everyone in the Center. As a conservative health measure, we intend to continue to require masks indoors until community vaccination rates increase and/or there is a reduction in the prevalence of highly transmissible COVID variants.
