One specific day at the Capitol when dozens of local chambers and their members come together to support a single issue: workforce mandates. The day will bring these businesses and their employers/employees to the Capitol to hear from key policy decision makers and their local legislators. The main goal of the day is to have the business voice heard on the single issue of workforce mandate legislation via physical presence at the Capitol.
Pick up your nametags and materials for the afternoon.
Doug Loon, president, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce kicks off the afternoon along with business owners from around the state telling their story of how mandates are affecting their businesses.
Legislative Appointments: Make an appointment to meet with your local legislators at their individual offices.
Issue Sessions: Attend organized issue briefings with key legislative leaders on mandate policies coordinated by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce.
Lobby Headquarters: Grab a refreshment and gather with the Minnesota Chamber lobby team to discuss legislative policy, write letters to the editor, record testimonials and write thank you notes to legislators.
Legislators are invited to join our members for an evening reception.
Head back to your district with the satisfaction you have carried the voice for your business community. Don't forget to send a thank you to your legislator or catch them for a follow up next time they are back in your community.
