Join us for the CGMC Summer Conference!

School’s out and summer is in full swing, which means the CGMC Summer Conference is almost here!

This year’s conference will be held July 20-22 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Austin. We have been working closely with the city of Austin to put together an excellent conference. Agenda highlights include:

  • An in-depth “investigation” into who killed the bonding bill and an interactive discussion on other legislative issues
  • A panel discussion on transportation featuring legislators and other key stakeholders
  • Presentations and speakers on other important topics such as emerging trends in environmental regulations, economic disparities & inequality in Greater Minnesota, labor & employee relations and more
  • A luncheon featuring presentations by a MN House Republican member and a House DFL member, who will each make the case for why their respective party should be in the majority in 2017
  • Options to tour unique Austin sites such as the Hormel manufacturing plant, the new $18M Austin Utilities Energy Park, the recently expanded Hormel Institute, Austin Arts Center, Jay C. Hormel Nature Center, and more!
  • An awards dinner honoring legislators, city officials and others who worked especially hard to advance Greater Minnesota priorities during the 2016 legislative session
  • …and of course, no stop in Austin would be complete without a visit to the brand-new SPAM Museum!
