MGRC Lobbyist 101 Programming

Lobbyist 101 returns on Friday, February 9th!

MGRC will again be hosting its Lobbyist 101 program on Friday mornings throughout the 2024 Session. This popular educational and networking opportunity for new and senior lobbyists alike will be held virtually again via Zoom.

The program will run for 6 weeks on Friday mornings until March 15th. Our programming will bring MGRC members in contact with legislative leadership and staff, key committee chairs, the Governor’s Commissioners and policy staff and weekly introductions to new and veteran legislators that you need to meet.

Programs will start at 8:30 am each week and conclude by 10:00 am. Registration will be required for each program. Details on how to attend the meeting will be emailed directly to you upon registering. Lobbyist 101 is a free program offered by MGRC and is open to all that would like to participate. So, be sure to share details with your interns or others that may find this programming valuable.
