“We are very excited about the present and future of Northern Green,” said Cassie Larson, MNLA executive director. “We continue to innovate to ensure relevance to green industry companies and employees. Walking the show floor, it was obvious that attendees are talking about the challenges they are facing, and exhibitors and colleagues are providing them with potential solutions.”
