    MAFAA Day on the Hill will be in collaboration with MACAC!

    The day will include breakfast, speakers and training with the opportunity to network with our MACAC colleagues. After some high level training, you will head out to meet with legislators. We will wrap up the day with thank you notes at the capitol. 

    You do not need to have any experience in legislative procedure because we will equip you with the necessary etiquette to achieve successful legislative meetings. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the Minnesota Legislature
