The Civic Buzz meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Black Forest Inn Banquet Room, Nicollet Avenue S. at 26th St. W. in Minneapolis. We gather at 5:30. You can order drinks and food and we begin our meeting at 6:15 and end at 7:30. Each month we have a speaker followed by discussion. Each month will have a new topic/issue for discussion. Anyone interested in discussing pressing topics related to citizen engagement are invited. A discussion with the League of Women Voters means that all voices are heard and we take opinions seriously. In the end, we all learn something new and hopefully have a broader understanding of the issues. Civic Buzz is co-sponsored by Whittier Alliance.
In light of the Pandemic that we are all experiencing we have cancelled the Tuesday, April 7th Civic Buzz gathering, which would have focused on the ACA and the healthcare in our city. We had scheduled Gretchen Musicant, the Commissioner of Health for the City of Minneapolis, Dr. Lynn Blewett, PhD, Professor of Health Policy and Management at the School of Public Health, Grace Arnold, Deputy Commissioner of Insurance for the state, and Kristi Bohn, VP of the Reinsurance Group of America. We hope to gather this group of professionals at a future date, to be determined, to address the issues surrounding healthcare in Minneapolis and the state.
