Spring Short Courses are Postponed

Dear Township Officials:

On behalf of the Minnesota Association of Townships Board of Directors, I am writing to let you know that, in the interest of safety of our township officials, staff, and communities, all upcoming Spring Short Courses are postponed until later in the year.

In addition, the remaining District Lobby Days at the Capitol in St. Paul (Districts 4, 9, 10, 12 planned for next week) will be cancelled.

The MAT Board discussed these decisions and consulted with the Minnesota Department of Health on large groups and demographic factors. The health and safety of our township officials and community is our priority.

Our commitment to providing learning opportunities for townships continues.

  • All handouts and presentations from the Spring Short Courses will be available next week in the Training Events section on the MAT website.
  • The League of Minnesota Cities prepared this recorded webinar and resource website for municipalities to prepare for COVID-19.
  • We are working with our Spring Short Course event sites and vendors to figure out future rescheduling plans – and we will communicate those plans when available.

For the latest on COVID-19, please visit www.cdc.gov (Centers for Disease Control) and www.health.state.mn.us (MN Department of Health).

Best regards,

David W. Hann
Executive Director
Minnesota Association of Townships
