MSBA Advocacy in Action — At-Home Edition

Due to the ongoing pandemic, MSBA will again be altering the format of our traditional advocacy event — the MSBA Day at the Capitol. Instead of meeting us at the Minnesota State Capitol building in St. Paul, we will be coming to you virtually. This month, MSBA’s Government Relations staff — Denise Dittrich and Kimberley Dunn Lewis — will host three opportunities for MSBA members called “MSBA Advocacy in Action — At-Home Edition.”


There is NO FEE to attend these sessions, but advance registration is required.

REGISTRATION: Access MSBA Event Registration | Please ask your school district staff to register you in advance by March 10.
