    Event Description

    Join the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce and Dakota County for an engaging Q&A with Dakota County Board of Commissioners Chair Liz Workman and Dakota County Manager, Matt Smith – facilitated by Roz Peterson, Realtor at Cerron Commerical Properties and former member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. They will share insights into what it takes to run a county with 422,000 residents, explore demographic trends, and discuss opportunities to best serve taxpayers and support the County’s business community. From being the third largest County in Minnesota to serving both urban and rural communities – we’ll hear how they are achieving success.


    Networking opportunities with fellow Chamber members, Board of Commissioners and staff members are planned before and after the event.

    This event is presented in partnership with Dakota County and our Chamber of Commerce partners: Apple Valley, Burnsville, Dakota County Regional, Lakeville, and River Heights.
