The Automotive Communities Partnership (ACP) is a membership-based program that brings together communities, international partners, automotive companies, educational institutions, and government agencies in a collaborative environment to sustain and grow the Great Lakes regional automotive footprint. The Great Lakes region offers many competitive benefits, including close proximity to major manufacturers, access to skilled labor, and multiple transportation options. ACP works to help communities successfully adapt and position themselves for new automotive products, technologies, and investments.
Organized as a program through the Center for Automotive Research, ACP offers members monthly industry updates; quarterly sales, production, and employment forecasts; exclusive networking opportunities; and advice on public policy and site selection opportunities.
