Following the Summit each year, we do extensive evaluation with an eye toward continuous improvement. We want each year's Summit to be better than the last! Here is a summary of the 2018 Summit Evaluation:

The Minnesota International NGO Network (MINN) is looking to engage new Board members for the 2019 calendar year. Leaders are being sought to help MINN work toward its vision of being the leader in providing a collaborative environment for Minnesota-based international NGOs. Since being granted 501(c) (3) status in 2011, the leadership has been striving to develop the organization’s structure and nurture its growth so that it may more effectively act as a forum for international practitioners and supporters to learn, network and exchange professional expertise.

Social media savvy is a must-have skill for INGOs, but how do we know if our messages are helping us achieve communications, fundraising, and advocacy goals? This is an especially challenging question when working with a budget that can only afford two very part-time staff members and 50+ volunteers whose work is driven by love of the organization and homemade guacamole.

Join MINN members for breakfast on Tuesday, July 17 from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at The Neighborhood Cafe in St. Paul. This will be an opportunity to network with MINN members over discussion about preventing violence against girls across the globe.

Beers and Careers launched this year with special guest speakers Hyon Kim (Founder and Board Chair at MidWest Alliance For NK Refugees) and Judy Hawkinson (Director of Philanthropy at Compatible Technology International). MINN attendees had an exclusive opportunity to get insights and ask questions about how to break into Minnesota’s international sector in Minnesota. Read participants' thoughts on the event.
