Minnesota Drainage Viewers Association

The Minnesota Viewers Association will be holding it's fifth seminar of 2018 on November 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Jackpot Junction Hotel and Convention Center - Morton, Minnesota.


This will be the fifth and final Minnesota Viewers Association Seminar of 2018 for those that are looking for accreditation for this year.  To be accredited, one must be a paid member and attend a minimum of two seminars annually.


The seminar will look at Separable Maintenance considerations with partial improvements.  John Kolb, Chuck Brandel and Ron Ringquist will provide information on the legal, engineering and value considerations.  As more and more of the existing drainage systems are nearing the end of their useful life, landowners, drainage authorities and viewers need to be aware of and understand the issues and distribution of project costs.


The registration fee of $25 for the seminar includes morning coffee, noon lunch and seminar materials.  2018 membership fees are $25.00 for individual membership, or $200.00* for an Associate membership. 


Hope you can attend.


Board Meeting will be at 9:45 prior to the regular seminar.


*Please note that an Associate membership fee has increased by $50 over 2017.
