Statewide Census 2020 Livestream – Information, Training, and Resources for Complete Count Committees

REGISTER TODAY!
Please note: Registration is through Sourcewell. This presentation is jointly offered on behalf of the Minnesota State Demographic Center, the Minnesota Service Cooperatives, the League of Minnesota Cities, the Association of Minnesota Counties, and the Minnesota Association of Townships.

Census Day, April 1, 2020, is less than six months away – do you have everything you need in place to ensure a complete count?

The 2020 census will decide how billions of dollars of federal funding are distributed to Minnesota communities. Congressional representation is also determined based on census counts – Minnesota being one of the states that could potentially lose a seat in Congress. Minnesota cities play an important role in getting an accurate count by forming and participating in Complete Count Committees.

Make sure you’re ready for the census this January by participating in an interactive livestream presented by the Minnesota State Demographic Center. You will go through resources and strategies to support the success of Complete Count Committees across Minnesota cities, counties, and townships.

Take part in this free online session to:

  • Gain strategies to support an accurate census count.
  • Access resources related to Census Day.
  • Connect with community leaders.
