Members of the Minnesota Business Partnership represent a broad range of business interests, political perspectives and personal philosophies. As chief executives of some of Minnesota’s largest employers, however, they are united by the belief that a diverse, vibrant economy is central to the quality of life Minnesotans enjoy. Membership is limited to chief executives of large Minnesota employers or, in the case of companies headquartered outside the state, the highest-ranking representative in Minnesota. Active participation of chief executives differentiates the Partnership from other business organizations and is key to our success in shaping policies that impact business growth and job creation in Minnesota.
