Important Announcement - Donn Eurich
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that our friend and former Executive Director for the Michigan Movers Association, Donnelly Eurich, has passed. I learned of Donnelly’s passing just a few days prior to this year’s 95th Annual Michigan Movers Convention. Donnelly (or Donn as he liked to be called) was an intelligent, funny, and thoughtful bridge-builder who was instrumental in the success and management of our industry association. He brought organization to our board meetings and the very best in educational training to our conferences. Donn’s involvement helped bring about many positive changes for our members and our moving customers alike, and continuously strengthened our governmental relationship. He was a selfless leader who quietly made everyone around him look good. I am sad to say that so much of what he did went unnoticed until he was gone. Life is precious and our time here is a gift; when it is our time, it is our time. Donn’s passing was unexpected, but there was comfort in the timing being so close to our annual convention. Moving companies from throughout the State of Michigan gathered together with our industry partners to pay respect to and share many fond memories of Donn. His time with all of us will not be forgotten. During this year’s convention, the Michigan Movers Board of Directors unanimously voted to change the name of our scholarship fund to the “Donnelly Eurich Michigan Movers Scholarship Fund.” Just as Donn touched all our lives, his legacy will continue to shape the lives of the next generation of students who will perhaps join the Moving Industry. I consider it an honor and privilege to have spent time serving with Donn and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May he rest in peace.
The Michigan Movers Association Board of Directors has put in place a search committee to find an association management company to replace Donn’s association management duties. We have hired a firm to source candidates and will most likely have 3 to choose from within the next couple of weeks. We will keep the association updated on the MMA website of any management changes for the MMA. As we are in the hiring process of a new management company please use the following phone numbers and emails for any association needs you may have.

Please be patient during this transition time as the Board of Directors hasn’t had to perform these administrative duties in the past. The Michigan Movers Association is one of our industries strongest state associations! This is a time when our membership shows its strength in leadership and member support.

The MMA is committed to bringing together organizations that provide services to our industry with our member moving companies.
