The building of cross-border relationships has become a hallmark of the MLC Annual Meeting, where you have the chance to learn from and develop lasting bonds with legislative colleagues — not only from other states, but from the provinces that make up our North American heartland. The states and provinces of the Midwest share much more than a border. We have many common policy interests, as well as invaluable economic and cultural ties that bind us.
The MLC Annual Meeting reflects these important bonds, while also giving us the chance to strengthen them. We have some renowned speakers lined up to complement the 2018 meeting’s many sessions on public policy. We also have special events planned for attendees’ guests of all ages, along with three exciting evening events at different sites in Winnipeg.
