Thank you to all who participated in the MSP Post’s 2017 Industry Day and 32th Annual Golf Tournament! We had a total of 54 participants, 10 Industry Day presentations, and 10 sponsorships from sustaining member firms. Industry Day participants earned 3 PDHs while attending sessions on climate change, innovation and technology, water resources, and legislative updates. Golf Tournament participants took part in challenges on every hole, and even had a chance at a $10,000 hole-in-one prize! First and second place teams were recognized, along with an “average joe” team, and nearly $400 worth of prizes were distributed following dinner.
The MSP Post sincerely thanks all the participants and the event sponsors who supporting the event, ensuring financial success. Special thanks to all those who contributed to the event’s success by helping with the event planning, providing presentations, and donating prizes.
