DCR Chamber Rolls Out New Program Geared to Small Businesses

The Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to introduce our new program Small Business University. Small Business University provides free consulting, practical seminars, and business information, for growing small businesses in Dakota County. We understand that resources and profit margins can be a challenge to our small businesses. 
 
Please join us for our first Small Business University, "Locally Social: Utilizing Social Media for Your Small Business", on May 1, 2019, 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. at  Evolve Workplace  (260 Wentworth Avenue East, West Saint Paul, MN 55112).
 
Thank you to our sponsor Evolve Workplace.
Round Table Discussion with Minnesota House Representative Laurie Halverson (51B)
 
The DCR Chamber is holding a round table discussion with Representative Laurie Halverson (51B) on HF 5 on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Rasmussen College (3500 Federal Drive, Room 201, Eagan, MN 55122).
 
This proposal creates an expansive state-wide mandate on employers and employees—a new state insurance program financed through a joint employer/employee payroll tax—in order to establish a partial wage replacement benefit for the purposes of medical AND family leave. This proposed legislation places a new payroll tax on every employer to create a broad new state-run insurance program.
 
We invite you to attend this discussion and provide input on how this will impact your business and employees and get the updates from Representative Halverson. Please contact Maureen Scallen Failor for more information.
 
Please RSVP  to:  Mscallenfailor@dcrchamber.com  or 651-288-9201.
Leadership of the Minnesota State Legislature

As we enter into the last month of the 2019 Legislative Session, tax conformity, capital investment, transit/transportation funding, workplace mandates, and other business issues are still on the table with no final agreement. The outcomes will be critical to the success of the business community of Dakota County and the State of Minnesota. Please join us to hear from the leadership of the Minnesota State Legislature on Friday, May 3, 2019.
