    The MERC education committee is back again with our 2nd annual ice fishing charity event!  Please join us for an afternoon of education, ice fishing, games, and networking. First, we will discuss the rising mortgage rate environment and applicable client policy considerations as rates continue to affect mobility programs nation-wide. We will sit fireside with local industry experts, Brandon Full (Wells Fargo), Brenda Thoeny-Johnson (Cartus) and Amy Jurek (RE/MAX Advantage Plus), as they provide various perspectives on how organizations can best support their employees during this time, along with hot off the press Minnesota housing data.

    After the education session, we will be hosting an ice fishing extravaganza to support The Foundation for Workforce Mobility, whose charities of choice this year are Family Promise, Move for Hunger and the Scholarship Fund. We will have a variety of raffles, including the opportunity to win Minnesota made gift baskets and cold, hard cash! All proceeds will go to support these great organizations.  If you plan to fish, we have you covered!  Simply ensure you have a warm jacket, hat (the first 60 registrants will receive a complimentary MN pom hat), gloves, and our friends at Set the Hook Guide Services will provide the rest!  Participants will need to purchase a one-day fishing license.  There may even be a prize for the participant who catches the biggest fish by the end of the day (in addition to bragging rights)! Space is limited for fishing, so register today to save your seat in one of the luxury ice castles!  

    Don’t fish but want to enjoy some comradery with your industry peers?  Join us on the lake for a fire, beverage, games, and no doubt a laugh or two as many of our out-of-town guests experience being on ice for the first (or second!) time.  It is sure to be a hit yet again - we hope to see you there!

    Attire:  Warm Casual (Jeans, sweaters, hat, fleece, flannel, mittens, boots….it’s a Minnesota winter!)

    *The first 60 registrants will receive a complimentary MN pom hat.*

    CRP credits will be available to attendees.
