Insurance Issues to be Discussed at the Business Day at the Capitol on March 13, 2013


MIIAB has once again partnered with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce for the 20th Annual Business Day at the Capitol, which will allow members to join the voice of the business community in making their concerns known to lawmakers.  The event will take place this year on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront Hotel.  Breakout sessions will kick off the event this year, rather than the traditional early breakfast opening of the day's activities.


More importantly, Dominic will be discussing the state health insurance exchange proposal which he has been lobbying on your behalf to insure agents are kept in the process.  It's very critical our members attend this meeting and contact their legislatures to discuss your involvement in the process.  The insurance briefing will be held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. in Kellogg Suites 2 & 3 on the Lobby Level.  The Insurance Federation will also be at this briefing discussing other insurance related legislation.


Please Be sure to register with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce before March 1 to take advantage of the early registration fee of $60.  Reservations made after March 1 go up to $75.
