Brainerd Chamber Looks at Legislative Challenges

The Brainerd Lakes Chamber invites Chamber business leaders to a luncheon meeting with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce as part of one of its Fall Regional Policy meetings. The focus of the meeting is “2011: New leadership, big challenges – A look at the major issues facing Minnesota and Minnesota businesses.”

The meeting will be noon-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1, at The Bodyworks, 14742 Dellwood Drive in Baxter.

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, with its member-driven agenda, is preparing to represent its members on more than 50 key business issues in 2011. In addition, the state Chamber has identified five priorities for the 2011 legislative session.

“Minnesota is facing many challenges, not the least of which is a $65 billion deficit,” said Lisa Paxton, Brainerd Lakes Chamber CEO. “These challenges affect the health of our businesses and communities each and every day. We have opportunities in this next legislative session to address these many concerns in regard to our budget deficit, our educational system outcomes, our rising energy costs and so much more.”

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce believes that Minnesota’s $33 billion general fund can meet the needs of Minnesota citizens and contribute to the development and growth of the state economy.

Cost to attend the Dec. 1 meeting is $7 with pre-registration, $9 at the door. Advance registration is requested. Register for this event online at or call (218) 829-2838. Participants are asked to park near the frontage road and use the main building entrance. A box lunch and beverage will be provided.
