  • Discovering how lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic could help make your city even stronger
  • Finding out how bills and budget plans passed in the 2021 legislative could impact your community
  • Learning about plans for possible changes to the Local Government Aid formula
  • The return of our annual awards dinner celebrating legislators and city leaders who had a strong positive impact on Greater Minnesota during the past year
  • Opportunities to meet with old friends and make new ones!
