2020 might seem far away, but the 2020 Census is just around the corner! Discover why the census is important and the impact it will have on Minnesota communities during census planning workshops coming to a city near you starting in January.

A complete, accurate census count will ensure your community has the maximum visibility and voice in the coming decade. Hear from Minnesota State Demographer Susan Brower about how local governments will play a role throughout the upcoming census. During this workshop, you’ll also learn what a Complete Count Committee is and the best strategy for organizing one in your community.

 

Sit down with local government colleagues from your area as you explore who is involved in the 2020 Census and the different roles the Census Bureau, MN State Demographic Center, and local governments will play throughout the census. You’ll get hands on experience with sample activities as you develop strategies that will lead to a successful census for your community.

Attend this workshop to:

  • Understand your city’s role with the upcoming census
  • Learn about Complete Count Committees and how to create one with city and county partners
  • Identify what your city needs to start working on now and develop a timeline
  • Access census planning tools and resources
  • Have the opportunity to connect with other local government officials and discuss the 2020 Census
  • Get concrete best practices, tools, and action ideas to mobilize every resident in your jurisdiction to be counted
