GMNP membership meeting to be held July 25

The Greater Minnesota Partnership’s annual membership meeting is coming up on Thursday, July 25 at 11 a.m. in the conference room in the Country Inn & Suites in Bemidji. All GMNP members are encouraged to attend! We will email the full agenda and any other meeting materials to our members when we get closer to the date.

As in past years, the GMNP membership meeting is being held in conjunction with the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities’ Summer Conference, which will be held July 24-26 at the Sanford Center in Bemidji (the Country Inn & Suites is located right next door). All GMNP members are invited to attend the full conference as well, which will feature a lot of economic development-focused presentations and discussions on topics such as workforce & affordable housing and an innovative school/city/business/higher ed job training partnership that has been established in Bemidji. In addition, DEED Commissioner Steve Grove is the luncheon speaker on Thursday — we look forward to hearing his insights into economic development issues and programs.
