Free Blandin Webinar: How to be Effective at the Capitol
Thursday, February 9, 2017 03:00 PM

A growing rural coalition puts broadband near the top of their legislative priorities.  We are striving to make broadband the top priority for all of the many different rural stakeholders – schools, cities, townships, counties, economic developers, health care providers – the list goes on – because broadband is essential for all of these groups to be successful in accomplishing their mission.

How can all of rural Minnesota join together to push adequate broadband funding through the legislative process?  Listen to the advice from our panel of experts that have been successful with other rural initiatives, whether on education, trails, agricultural issues or bicycles.

Our panel:

  • Judy Erickson – Trails and Tourism
  • Dorian Grilley – Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota
  • Joe Gould – Minnesota Rural Education Association
  • Thom Peterson – Minnesota Farmers Union
