2021 Minnesota TZD Webinar Series

The 18th Annual Minnesota TZD Statewide Conference that was scheduled for October 13-14, 2021, in Rochester is changing formats and going completely virtual due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases.

The 2021 Minnesota TZD Webinar Series will kick off on the originally scheduled conference date, Wednesday, October 13, with additional webinars following over the next few weeks. The 12 webinars will highlight the latest trends and traffic safety initiatives, with expert guests sharing a cross-section of topics from all four E's.

The webinars are free to attend, but registration will be required to receive access to the live broadcasts. All webinars (except for the November 17 event) will also be recorded for future viewing.
