Michigan Section ARPSC Net Scheduling:

The Michigan ARPSC Net meets each Sunday at 1700 local time near 3.932 MHz. If conditions warrant, the net will meet near 7.232 MHz. These are the designated Michigan Emergency Frequencies. 1.932 MHz is also a designated Emergency Frequency, but at 1700 local time it is unlikely that conditions would require that frequency.

Net control duties rotate among the various districts with a member of the section staff assuming net control duties on the first Sunday of each month. See MI-ARPSC Net Control Schedule

Net Logger Free Software

NetLogger is an amateur radio logging program for members of a "net" and allows keeping track of who has checked in/out and relays information to other users of NetLogger (about every 20 seconds or so). {This is the 'almost instant' messaging you may hear about.} Data can be imported and exported and the program has many, many other features.

Rather than reinvent the wheel here, just use the good information on the Wolverine Single Sideband Net's NetLogger page {meets 3.935 MHz @ 2200 UTC nightly ~ 3 PM local}. That page will explain the NetLogger software and get you started.
