MMUA’s Legislative Conference is the municipal utility community’s primary opportunity to inform and influence state lawmakers. This year, the format of our event will be a two-day Legislative Conference. Day one will begin with a briefing and lunch at the Capitol Building in St. Paul. From there, members will spend the afternoon visiting their legislators’ offices. We’ll cap off the day with a reception at the Best Western Plus Capitol Ridge Hotel, providing MMUA members the opportunity to visit with additional lawmakers. Day two will provide timely and useful conference sessions.

We are still working on the program so check back for more details.
