About



Our Mission: The Minnesota International NGO Network (MINN) is a forum for international practitioners and supporters to learn, network and exchange professional expertise.


Our Vision: To be the leader in providing a collaborative environment for Minnesota international NGOs to learn and exchange ideas. Our efforts result in innovative and effective solutions that enrich the lives of the global community.


Our Work: Founded in the spring of 2005, The Minnesota International NGO Network serves to connect all international humanitarian and development practitioners and supporters based in Minnesota, through education, networking, and information resources. Whether you are new to the world of international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) or a seasoned veteran, MINN is your forum to connect with colleagues and stay aware of what other NGOs based in Minnesota are doing around the world.


Volunteer With MINN: To advance its mission and implement its programming, MINN has two main volunteer committees. To learn more about each committee, the resources they provide, and how you can volunteer, check out our Committees page.


Governance: The MINN Board of Directors is composed of individuals with diverse backgrounds and expertise selected to meet MINN's evolving needs and support its Mission and Vision. Many of the members of the Board are Chairs or former leaders of MINN's other main committees, such as Education, Networking, or Summit Planning. See the leadership structure and biographies of the Board of Directors.
