For many years, the Minnesota Governmental Relations Council board and members have supported the Minnesota Youth in Government program, both with financial contributions and by volunteering at the annual YIG Lobbyist luncheon at the Capitol. 

Since you’ve spent the summer honing your golf skills on the big courses, it’s time to putt those talents to the test at the 3rd Annual YIG Mini Golf Tournament on Wednesday, July 26th at Como Park Putt'er There Mini Golf & Pavilion. Please consider supporting this outstanding program by spending time with these student leaders who may one day be sharing the halls of the Capitol with us! Legislators, lobbyists and staff alike will join you on the links for a fun-filled day to support a great cause.

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.
