GMNP members invited to Legislative Action Day on March 11

The GMNP’s sister organization, the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC), is holding its annual Legislative Action Day on Wednesday, March 11 in St. Paul. All GMNP members are invited to participate. This day-long lobbying event is a great opportunity to learn more about legislative issues affecting Greater Minnesota and advocate for economic development priorities at the Capitol.

The day will kick off at the Best Western Capitol Ridge with a brief legislative update in the morning followed by lunch featuring a panel discussion featuring legislative leaders (Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk, House Speaker Melissa Hortman and House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt have all been invited). Attendees will then spend the afternoon meeting with their legislators at the House and Senate offices (members should make their own appointments for meetings with legislators between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. that day). The  event concludes with a legislative reception and dinner at Mancini’s Char House & Lounge.

Please register online at greatermncities.org/product/legislative-action-day-registration/. The deadline to register is March 2.
