Registration is now open for the CGMC’s Legislative Action Day 2019!
Our annual “day at the Capitol” event will be held Wednesday, January 30, 2019 in St. Paul. Legislative Action Day is always a great opportunity to build connections between local officials and legislators and advocate for the priorities of Greater Minnesota cities. To attend, please go to greatermncities.org/LAD19 to fill out the online registration form. The cost is $70 per person, and attendees may pay online or be invoiced later. Please register by Jan. 21.
The day will kick off at 10:30 a.m. with a brief legislative update followed by lunch featuring a yet-to-be-determined speaker (we have extended an invitation to Governor Tim Walz and are currently awaiting his response). Members 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 daylong event concludes with a legislative reception and dinner at Mancini’s Char House & Lounge that evening. The full agenda and venue information can be found on this Legislative Action Day flyer.
For those who want to spend the night in St. Paul, a block of rooms is reserved for the CGMC for the nights of Jan. 29-30 at the Best Western Plus Capitol Ridge ($139+tax, call 651-227-8711 to book). The deadline to book a room under the block is Jan. 11.
