All GMNP members are invited to attend the CGMC 2015 Summer Conference!

As in previous years, members of the Greater Minnesota Partnership are encouraged to attend the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities’ annual summer conference, which will be held July 22-24, 2015, at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC).

We have a great event lined up! Highlights include a re-cap of the legislative session and its effects on economic development issues; a lawmaker panel discussion; presentations on important topics such as environment & energy issues and the changing demographics of Greater Minnesota; a keynote luncheon featuring Star Tribune columnist Lori Sturdevant; options to tour unique Duluth facilities such as AAR Aircraft Maintenance, the Duluth Seaway Port Authority and local breweries; an awards dinner honoring legislators, city officials and others who worked especially hard to advance Greater Minnesota priorities during the 2015 legislative session, and much more! Check out the full agenda for more information.

The cost for the three-day conference is $275 (not including lodging). To register, please fill out this form and email it to or mail it to:

P.S. Please note that the GMNP’s annual membership meeting will be held in conjunction with the conference. The meeting will be at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 23 at the DECC. Members are welcome to attend the meeting even if they don’t wish to stay for the entire conference (there is no cost attend the meeting). Members who attend the meeting but not the full conference are welcome to stay for the keynote luncheon featuring Lori Sturdevant at a cost of $20 for the meal.
