LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan will host a national conference of lieutenant governors in 2016.

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley announced the selection on Monday. The National Lieutenant Governors Association will hold the annual conference in Grand Rapids in July 2016.

Lieutenant governors from all 50 states and five territories will be invited.

Calley, a Republican, says the conference is a chance to “show off” Michigan’s turnaround and collaborate with other lieutenant governors on best practices. He says no Michigan tax money will be spent on the three-day meeting.

This year’s conference will be held next month in Indianapolis.
