MACC Zooms In


"Zoom In" on the issues that matter to you! 


MACC Zooms In: Things are still moving at warp-speed. During this rapidly evolving crisis, it's more important than every that we stay connected. In our virtual "MACC Zooms In" sessions we bring our network together to connect, talk with each other, hear from experts, and discuss the issues and challenges they're facing.


Upcoming Zoom In sessions: 


NEW: MACC Zooms In On: Accessing Legislative Funding Opportunities

Join political strategist Amy Koch from Hylden Advocacy and Law Tuesday, August 31st from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm to talk about how your organization can navigate funding processes at our state legislature. It can feel a bit inaccessible and mysterious unless you’ve got someone in the know. Fortunately we do! With her background as both a MN state Senator and her current work as a political strategist Amy has seen all sides of the legislative process.

  • Learn about legislative budget appropriations and how your organization can be included.
  • Learn about how to approach a bonding request - where to get started and what to do next.
  • 2022 will be a key 2nd year of ARP (American Rescue Plan) funds, learn how your organization can access those dollars!
