Northstar Retail Group Director, Matt Hazelton, thinks you should be in attendance. Approached by the Minnesota Shopping Center Association (MSCA) to contribute an article about this annual event, Matt reflected on the importance and the benefits of attending.
“Business Day at the Capitol is facilitated by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. It’s a great event to get real-time commentary on what’s happening at the legislative level,” Matt explains. “It’s a rare but valuable opportunity to meet with multiple legislators in a short amount of time; it’s also a chance to help create more informed and accountable legislative representatives, the same representatives who vote on measures directly affecting Minnesota businesses.”
Matt attended Minnesota Business Day at the Capitol in April 2016 and will be attending the event again this year on March 8, 2017. You can sign up for this event through the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. He hopes to see you there!
