MACTA’s Day at the Capitol is scheduled for Wednesday, April 11. This year, MACTA is emphasizing the importance of meeting with your legislators!
A brief pre-meeting gathering will be held at the League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) office where you’ll be provided talking points and – if you’d like – a polished mentor to help you navigate your legislative meetings.
Tour the state-of-the-art broadcast control rooms with Alpha Video and see the HD systems that were part of the Capitol Restoration Project. 
Gather to hear legislative updates from some of our friends on the front line working to defend our cities interests.  We’ll arrange for lunch to be there on site so you won’t miss a beat.
9 – 9:30 a.m.: Welcome at League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) Offices
Pick up detailed information for the day including talking points to use with legislators.  Parking is available.

9:30 – 10 a.m.: Stroll to the Capitol

10 – 11 a.m.: Capitol Technology Tour with Alpha Video
Two state-of-the-art broadcast control rooms
11 a.m. – Noon: Legislative update with MACTA, LMC
Cass Gilbert Library Room 317A

Noon – 1 p.m.: Lunch and networking
Governor’s Dining Room

1 – 4 p.m.: Meet your Legislators (Find who represents me)
Please schedule your interview times directly with your representative’s legislative assistant. Let them know you’ll be there and ask them to save the date!
Registration fee is $15 for members and $30 for non-members
Don’t forget your camera!  Conduct an interview, and take back some informative footage of your representatives and the beautiful renovations of the Capitol to share on your PEG channels and social media. 
This is a great chance for Legislators to get to know you, your organization and MACTA! It’s the first step in creating a working relationship, and letting them know the valuable work you do in providing public, educational and government information to your communities.  Remind them that MACTA supports community media production and legislation that will “keep it local!”
