Mark your calendars for the 77th Annual Minnesota Farmers Union Convention, Nov. 16-18 at Delta Hotels by Marriott Minneapolis Northeast (formerly the Ramada Plaza).
The convention begins with a reception on the evening of Nov. 16. The next two days will consist of policy debate and election of delegates to the National Farmers Union Convention. We will also hold a reception for the MFUPAC and live and silent auctions to fundraise for the MFU Foundation and PAC. A tentative agenda can be found here.
The convention itself is free to attend; however, attendees must purchase meals. We serve Minnesota-grown meals for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner each day. You can purchase however many meals you like, or the full meal package. RSVP and pay by Monday, Nov. 5. You may purchase meal tickets at the door if you prefer.
To reserve a hotel room, contact the hotel directly at (612) 331-1900, ext. 3 (the front desk) by Thursday, Nov. 1 to guarantee the special MFU rate of $109/night plus taxes and fees. A credit card is required to book your reservation.
