The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau sponsors programming and scholarships for members of the Diversity and Executive Leadership Program (DELP), a major initiative of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). As host of DELP’s annual reunion, scholars get the chance to discover what’s amazing around every corner in The D, like the Motown Museum, the world-famous Eastern Market, the Arab American National Museum and more. Discover Detroit, America’s great comeback city, for yourself.
