Now is the time to take action to connect with your state lawmakers!
On February 9th, join us for Day at the Capitol and help educate your lawmakers on how HRAs serve their constituents and strengthen communities within their district. Don’t worry if you have never done this before. Our format ensures that both the newcomer and the veteran has a productive day with lawmakers. Once you register, we will contact your lawmakers to make appointments.
In addition to educating lawmakers, don't miss these two additional opportunities. On Wednesday evening, Minnesota NAHRO will host our 2017 New Year Open House and Reception. Second, on Thursday we will provide a tour of the newly renovated Capitol building which is breathtaking.
