Thank you to MINN's inaugural members. In the fall of 2013, MINN launched its first membership campaign and over one hundred people joined. These founding members provided a financial pledge of support to MINN's mission to be the leading forum for international practitioners to learn, network and exchange professional expertise in Minnesota.

Few people have their finger more firmly on the pulse of international development than Nancy Lindborg—Assistant Administrator for the Bureau for Democracy, Governance and Humanitarian Assistance at USAID. Over the course of her distinguished career—which includes serving as President of Mercy Corps—Lindborg has developed a keen understanding of the world’s development “hot spots”—places like Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, Burma, Kenya, northern Mali, the Horn of Africa, and the Sahel.
