Chambers hosts legislative breakfast

Eggs and Issues, a preview of the 2014 legislative session sponsored by the Brainerd Lakes Chamber, will be from 7-10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, at Arrowwood Lodge at Brainerd Lakes, 6967 Lake Forest Road, Baxter.

Cost is $20 per person and includes a hot breakfast buffet.

The 2014 Minnesota legislative session begins Feb. 25. Those attending can share their perspective on issues and learn about hot topics affecting them and their business in the 2014 session. All of the Brainerd lakes area legislators have been asked to participate.

After the breakfast buffet, Matt Kilian, chamber CEO, will provide opening comments and introductions. Each legislator will share his or her perspective on 2014 session priorities and important issues facing the state. Those who attend then will have a chance to ask questions of the elected officials, and each legislator will have an opportunity for a timed response.

Advance reservations and cancellations will be accepted until 8 a.m. Jan. 21. Cancellations after that time are responsible for payment. The event is open to chamber members and invited guests only. To register, email Matt Perrine at or call him at 218-822-7107.
