Please join MERC for our Summer Education Meeting on Tuesday, June 6th. We will be experiencing an afternoon of education, networking, and St. Paul history!

First, Economist Doug Manthei (US Bank) will be discussing Labor Shortages, Layoffs, and Legislation. Are you curious about the current layoff environment and how this may create room for acquiring new talent? Want to know where pay transparency legislations are currently enacted and where we may see them next? Interested in hearing about labor shortages and how this may affect your future hiring? Join us for this interactive session that is sure to be of value for all!

We will also welcome Family Promise, a MERC charitable partner.  They will be at the event to let attendees know more about the range of programs and services they provide to families experiencing homelessness.

Following our on-site education session, we will be touring the only remaining restored Gangster Era site (voted as the most haunted location in Minnesota by the Star Tribune), with extensive caves carved into the hillside. What was once a mine in the 1800’s turned mushroom farm, then later developed as a Restaurant Casino and Gangster’s Hotspot during the 1930’s, we will explore and partake in the history of this St. Paul gem. The tour will then be followed with drinks, appetizers, and good old networking!

CRP, HRCI and SHRM credits will be available.
