Labor Day weekend, August 30–September 2, 2014
July 26 — This is your final chance to book your tickets for ERA’s 2014 convention in Minneapolis, home to the nation’s newest light rail opening, Metro Transit’s Green Line (photo at left). Considering that the line is already carrying 32,000 passengers a day, which is 10% above previous 2015 projections, it’s safe to say that the Green Line is a rousing success!
Hotel reservations close August 11 at the Hotel Minneapolis. About 80 of you have booked so far! Other options are available, and you can book convention tickets until August 22. This convention is not to be missed. Book now! — ERA President Bob Newhauser
The 2014 Annual Convention will be held on Labor Day weekend, August 30–September 2, 2014 in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The luxurious Hotel Minneapolis will be our headquarters and the site of our 2014 Annual Banquet. Activities will include a scenic railroad trip along Lake Superior, visits to two historic railroad depots (including lunch in one), trolley rides at three museums, and tours of the Northstar commuter rail and Metro Transit’s two light rail lines, one of which is opening in June 2014.
