MN Chamber Business Day at the Capitol

chamber 2Greater Mankato Growth invites you to join a delegation of Greater Mankato Business Leaders on April 18 as we travel to St. Paul to participate in the Minnesota Chamber Business Day at the Capitol. This event brings business leaders from across the state together to collectively advocate for key business issues. With the Legislature considering a major tax reform bill this year, it’s critical that our legislators hear from business leaders.

Greater Mankato attendees participating in this event will help raise the visibility of our region among state leaders as well as speak directly with legislators about the top issues for your business and our community. The event kicks off at the InterContinental Hotel in St. Paul with a legislative briefing and keynote luncheon then we travel to the Capitol for sessions with key legislative leaders and meetings with our local legislative delegation.
