You are invited to join us for our Days at the Capitol, an interactive day at Minnesota State Capitol guided by your advoacates at Hospitality Minnesota helping you address lawmakers and issues important to you.
As we know, advocacy is one of the most important shared areas of focus and meeting with lawmakers at their offices in small tactical teams allows for a persistent drumbeat of visibility and messaging on the issues that you care about at the most opportune time.
As noted on the graphic, the format of having multiple days and smaller groups worked well to provide targeted impact with select lawmakers representing specific districts and businesses.
Sharing your business insights, challenges and experiences with your elected officials makes a difference!
“This was my first time coming to talk to my legislators and Hospitality Minnesota made it easy to get engaged. It was a very positive experience and I will definitely continue to participate.”
~ Joanne Schmitt, MRA Member
