Day on the Hill
Thank you for those who had joined us for the 2019 MACAC Day on the Hill. Past participants have raved about the opportunity to visit Minnesota legislators and advocate for students, counselors, and education.
The day started at the Best Western (formerly Kelly Inn) with a full breakfast and the Government Relations Committee provided training for visits and information about MACAC’s legislative agenda. The first appointments with legislators began at 10:30AM and ended by 3:00PM. After the last meeting, fellow members joined back at the Best Western for a review of the day. Every attendee made legislative visits with a group of MACAC members and shared in the conversations with Senators and Representatives.
The MACAC Government Relations Committee members schedule your legislative visits and attendees are given a final schedule of the day before the event.
The Government Relations Committee would love to have representation from all parts of the state. Tell your friends and join us at the Capitol!
Registration now closed for 2019
