Lobbyist 101 Series

MGRC is  pleased to offer the Lobbyist 101 Series: Training and Networking for Lobbyists in January and February. These sessions are held on Fridays at 8:30 am in  Room 10 State Office Building. These sessions are free, please pre-register so we can plan ahead. 


This year's sessions are an excellent opportunity to meet with legislative and government officials to expand your knowledge base on the workings of our state government. It's also a chance to network with veteran lobbyists, ask questions about the legislative process, and meet key officials that work for the legislature and other state offices.

MGRC Statement of Purpose

Formed in 1979, the Minnesota Governmental Relations Council (MGRC) is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the ethical and professional standards of legislative representation. MGRC provides value to over 500 members through educational programming, networking opportunities, dedicated work-space at the Minnesota State Capitol, publishing of a member directory, and legislative advocacy on issues affecting the practice of legislative representation.


All members of the Minnesota Governmental Relations Council (MGRC) agree to abide by certain minimum ethical standards of conduct. Adherence to these standards is not only required for membership in the Council, but serves to assure public confidence in the integrity and services of members of the Council. These standards include these obligations.

MGRC has adopted an Antitrust Policy which prevents the board and committees from engaging in discussion that could result in anti-competitive activities.
