State of the Cities Luncheon 2023

State of the Cities Luncheon 2023

Thursday, March 16, 2023 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (CDT)


Join the Hermantown Area Chamber for our Annual State of the Cities Luncheon at Black Wood's Event Center in Proctor.  

We'll hear a regional update from Mayor Chad Ward of Proctor, Mayor Wayne Boucher of Hermantown, and Mayor John Werner of Rice Lake who represent our cities on the hill, with a combined 18,000+ people who live there.  We'll hear about what's new, what's exciting, what's the hope for this season's legislative session, how it will impact our communities, and why Proctor, Hermantown, and Rice Lake are some of the best areas to live, work, build a business, and play in - here in the Northland.

Lunch includes a served, plated multi-course meal, details to come - but of course, it will be Black Wood's at its best!  If you have any dietary restrictions, please email

And because it falls on St. Urho's day, there will be some extra special fun at the event - even if you're not Finnish!

Member tickets will be $35, and non-member tickets will be $45. NEW THIS YEAR, an opportunity to be a Contributing Sponsor for $100, includes 2 tickets to the event w/ recognition in our event program and on this site.

  • Your registration confirmation serves as your ticket, all registered guests will be on a guest list at check-in.  
  • All guests who register in advance will receive a reminder 48 hours prior.  
  • Tickets are non-refundable, but they are transferable.
