Our virtual annual meeting is this Wednesday!

Greater Minnesota Parks & Trails’ annual membership meeting is coming up this week on Wednesday, Oct. 20. This virtual meeting allows all members to be a part of important business such as voting on your board members and legislative platforms. Guest speakers will include Chao Mwatela from Rochester, speaking on diversity, equity and inclusion in parks; Tim Engrav from USDA Forest Services talking about the impacts of COVID-19 and the Greenwood Fire; and an update from Renee Mattson, executive director of the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks & Trails Commission. See the full meeting agenda here.

This is a great opportunity to meet colleagues and business members from around the state and enhance your collaboration with our organization. It is also a perfect time to voice concerns and long-term goals for legislative issues and help form the mission of our legislative stance moving forward.
