If you haven’t attended a stop on the 2016 MSBA Statewide Advocacy Tour, this week marks your final chance!

This week’s meetings are scheduled for:

  • Tuesday: Sartell and Thief River Falls
  • Wednesday: Fergus Falls and Grand Rapids
  • Thursday: Cloquet and Walker

Walk-ins are welcome for all locations!

Dinner is served at 5 p.m. and the meetings get underway at 5:30 p.m.

Visit http://www.mnmsba.org/AdvocacyTour for venue and agenda information.

Last year’s Advocacy Tour was a catalyst for creating the Teacher Shortage Act. Let’s see what we can do together this year.

Also, MSBA is now accepting legislative resolutions from members through Friday, September 30. Good policymaking begins when a board or a board member identifies an issue that needs to be resolved or a new idea to be considered, and submits a solution in the form of a legislative resolution.

Members can download forms at http://tinyurl.com/2016-ResolutionForm.

Send questions to Grace Keliher (gkeliher@mnmsba.org) or Denise Dittrich (ddittrich@mnmsba.org).

The MSBA Delegate Assembly will debate and vote on submitted resolutions in December 2016.
