The 17th Annual Minnesota TZD Statewide Conference that was scheduled during October in Duluth has been modified to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Minnesota TZD is taking this opportunity to engage with our partners and disseminate current information in a new way. And it’s all free!

The 2020 Minnesota TZD Webinar Series will kick off on the originally scheduled conference date, Tuesday, October 20, with additional webinars following over the next few weeks. The webinars will highlight the latest trends and traffic safety initiatives with expert guests sharing a cross-section of topics from all four Es.

The webinars are free to attend, but registration will be required to receive access to the live broadcasts. All webinars (except for the November 10 event) will also be recorded for future viewing.
