    Save the Date! MAGC’s largest professional development event of the year, the Fall Conference, is planned for Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Earle Brown Event Center in Brooklyn Center. A full day of sessions are planned, with topics based on feedback from membership.

    The theme this year revolves around connecting with audiences using humor. While it can be a touchy path to navigate for government agencies, when it’s done well it drives engagement and is fun! 

    Our keynote speaker is Mike Veeck, owner of the St. Paul Saints and co-founder of Fun is Good, a Twin Cities-based organization that specializes in employee engagement. Mike is an amazing storyteller who will inspire us to achieve success by redefining rules, cultivating creativity and having fun. More details to come, but reserve the date now so you don’t miss out!
