Commission

CUPPAD was created by state legislation in 1968 as one of fourteen state-designated planning and development regions. Located in Escanaba, MI, CUPPAD serves the central six counties of the central Upper Peninsula (Alger, Delta, Dickinson, Marquette, Menominee, and Schoolcraft) and is governed by a 37-member commission with an 8-member Executive Committee. These commissioners come from all over the region, with representation from each county, and bring their knowledge, expertise, and leadership to the everyday activities of CUPPAD.
