The upcoming legislative session will be critical to the future of the University.

President Kaler is counting on you to raise your voices as budget requests move through the State Capitol process.

Grand Reception

February 13, 2013
5:00 – 8:00 pm
Join our state legislators and their legislative assistants for an evening of socializing while visit vendor booths showcasing the businesses and products of the Northland. In recent years, the Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol initiative has brought together a coalition of businesses and government representatives who successfully lobbied for the new AMSOIL Arena funding, Duluth Airport Terminal construction, Wastewater Infrastructure fund for clean water projects across the state, and much, much more.

This event serves to highlight the collective legislative agenda of Duluth and St. Louis County. Because it is the largest event of its kind produced by any city, legislators view it as one of the best events of the legislative season. You can expect to meet Legislators and fellow Northlanders while having an enjoyable time helping our region accomplish its goals.

Be a part of the initiative by registering to attend the Grand Reception today!
