Updated: MIDC Regional Manager Assignments

The Michigan Indigent Defense Commission has Regional Managers on staff to provide direction and guidance to indigent defense delivery systems around the state on compliance with MIDC-enacted standards. They serve as liaisons between local systems and the MIDC.  The Regional Managers have answers to all of the most common questions, they can provide technical information about how to determine spending on indigent defense, and they are prepared to offer practical solutions for compliance to maximize the impact of improvements.  All stakeholders are welcome to contact the Regional Managers to discuss the standards and how to implement them locally.
