“We’re excited to have the Church of God in Christ’s Women’s International Convention in Minneapolis again,” said Melvin Tennant, president and CEO, Meet Minneapolis. “It’s a bonus to have them here during the Memorial Day holiday, which can be a quiet time downtown. The attendees will surely keep hospitality businesses busy.”
