Registration is now open for the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities’ Legislative Action Day! This year’s event will be held Wednesday, March 16. It will kick off with a brief legislative update in the morning, followed by lunch with a speaker (both Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk and House Speaker Kurt Daudt have been invited) at the Flaherty & Hood office in St. Paul. 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.

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 RSVP, please fill out this registration form and email it to or mail it to the listed address. Please RSVP by March 2.

For those who want to spend the night in St. Paul, a limited number of rooms have been reserved for the CGMC at the Best Western Plus Capitol Ridge (formerly the Kelly Inn) for the nights of March 15 and March 16 at a cost of $139 (plus tax) per night. The block is reserved for the CGMC until Feb. 15. Members are encouraged to book their rooms early, as other events in St. Paul that week may make it difficult to find a hotel room on short notice. Call the hotel at 651-227-8711 to make a reservation.

If you have any questions about Legislative Action Day, please contact Julie Liew at or 651-259-1917.

We hope to see you there!
