It's not too late to participate in ASLA-MN's 2017 Advocacy Day!

This year's event has been designed to help attendees become familiar with the advocacy process.  Participants will have the opportunity to: 

  • Join others as they visit with elected officials
  • Sit in on committee hearings (including Legacy Funding; Agriculture and Rural Development; and Job Growth)
  • Learn about the advocacy process from a professional lobbyist
  • Learn about the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board's (CAAPB) Comprehensive Master plan
  • Take a tour of the newly renovated Capitol

This is a free event.  While appointments have been made for those who pre-registered, you can still participate.  Just show up and join in as your schedule permits.  We'll be in Room 400N of the State Office Building.
