Minnesota Chapter Annual Meeting

Join us for the NWRA Minnesota Chapter Annual Meeting, held on October 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the Vikings. During the meeting, members will gather to discuss legislative and regulatory activity, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), organics, commercial drivers and other legislative initiatives.

Following guest speakers and a networking lunch, members will tour the U.S. Bank Stadium and hear about its sustainability practices. U.S. Bank Stadium aims to reduce its carbon footprint in all areas of operations, including but not limited to water reduction, waste reduction/diversion, energy efficiency, sustainable purchasing and the promotion of alternative transportation. As a LEED-certified stadium, much of the innovation is based on smart technology and providing efficient and sustainable solutions that make the event experience overwhelmingly excellent.
