Connect Overview

The Minnesota Department of Commerce and its various divisions generate a wealth of useful information for consumers, companies, media and other constituents. We've developed a variety of tools to help you keep track of this information. Below you'll find a brief overview of each tool.  Pick one or a combination that suits your needs.


Our calendar currently contains event listings for five different areas of the Department of Commerce.

  • A general calendar spanning the entire department. 

  • Specialized calendar for Energy Assistance Providers.

  • Specialized calendar for Weights and Measures.

  • Specialized calendar for Licensing.

  • Specialized calendar for the Division of Energy Resources.

Calendar events are usually open to the public. There may be times when a representative of the department is giving a presentation to a specific stakeholder group and that organization controls access to the event. The calendar may also contain meeting/training notices for very specific audiences, such as Energy Assistance Providers. An event notice may include additional documents, which may be downloaded, describing the event as well as links to a website related to the event or maps to event locations. You may add events from the calendar to your personal calendar.

You will find a link to the calendar displayed in many places on our web sites, including the home pages. Or you may link to it here.
