We have a great conference lined up! The annual CGMC Summer Conference will be held July 20-22, 2016, at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Austin, Minn. Some of the highlights of the conference will include:

  • A full recap of the legislative session
  • Presentations and speakers on important topics such as labor relations, environmental regulations, and economic disparities & inequality in Greater Minnesota
  • A legislative panel discussion
  • Keynote luncheon featuring Rep. Tim Walz (invited)
  • Options to tour unique Austin sites such as the Hormel manufacturing plant, the Jay C. Hormel Nature Center, the new $18M Austin Utilities Energy Park, the recently expanded Hormel Institute 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!
