It’s not too late! Register now for GMPT Legislative Action Day

If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to register for GMPT’s annual Legislative Action Day! All members are invited to attend virtually or in-person on Thursday, March 14, at the State Capitol in St. Paul to promote parks and trails initiatives.

This free, partial-day event provides networking opportunities, speakers from key partners, advice on lobbying, connections with a few elected officials, and time for lobbying. The day’s events will kick-off at 10:00 a.m. and feature presentations from GMPT Lobbyist Elizabeth Wefel who will discuss our organization’s legislative priorities and provide tips on lobbying.

Executive Director Renee Mattson from the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission (GMRPTC) will also be there to talk about the Commission’s latest work.

We will be hosting an award ceremony for Sen. Grant Hauschild, who will be receiving GMPT’s “Legislative Champion” award and will be discussing the important legislation he will be carrying for our organization. We have also invited the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) leadership staff to join us and discuss strategic initiatives at the DNR and opportunities for partnership. There will be an opportunity to tour the Capitol Complex for those who are able to attend in person.

For those attending in-person, we encourage you to meet with your legislators. Please note that you are responsible for scheduling your own appointments.
