On Tuesday, April 7th, 2020, the Community of Minnesota Resorts held its first-ever live online workshop for resorts throughout the state of Minnesota. Just under 100 resorts attended via computer login or from their phones. Topics include financial planning, discussion of various loan relief options, legislative updates, and operational items to support resorts as we all navigate through these unique times.
Members commented on how wonderful it was to be able to still connect (albeit online) and discuss topics that are so relevant at this time to allow for preparations for the upcoming season. We will be planning more future online informational and educational items to allow for remote participation and the communication of vital information.
As promised, we have pasted links to view the entire recorded online workshop, click here.
2020 UPDATE: After looking at many options, we as the CMR Board decided for the safety of all members that it was best to move the annual CMR fall conference to the spring. Instead of our traditional Spring Workshop, we will instead be working all winter to provide a knockout CMR Spring Conference! We’ve already lined up the location and dates! It will be held in Duluth, March 26th-28th, 2021! More details to come as the date approaches. For now, put these dates on your calendar!
DUE TO COVID, we have scheduled outdoor resort gatherings instead, Fall 2020
September 2019 we toured in the Cass Lake/Blackduck Area.
Thank you to our host resorts Lost Acres Resort, Cass Lake Lodge and Joe’s Lodge, and Sah Kah Tay Beach Resort.
Over 50 of your fellow resorters saw how these resorts operate and gathered new ideas, shared stories from the season and learned from other resorters.
It is always a great time to see old friends or make new friends and just spend a relaxing day away from your resort after a busy summer season.
