Legislative forums still on despite COVID-19
It is good news that the Minot Area Chamber EDC plans to host Saturday legislative forum as it has done in the past, sans COVID-19.
For those of us a couple of hours away from the action at the state Capitol, every two years the popular forums are another way to stay informed. The forums also also perhaps the best way to make contact with area legislators, who make themselves available to constituents on their “days off.” Their attendance is always appreciated.
But this time around one will have to have Internet access and the ability to use the Zoom platform to take part in the forums. Just consider that another learning opportunity brought to you by your Chamber; perhaps a silver lining in an otherwise gloomy sky. It’ll be fun.
The Chamber has tentatively scheduled forums for today and again Jan. 30, beginning at 9 a.m. Anyone interested in getting on a list to receive a link to any of the upcoming forums can contact the chamber at 852-6000.
Sorry, but you will have to make your own coffee for these forums.
