MINN is looking to engage new Board members for the 2018 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, leadership has been striving to develop the organization’s structure and nurtures its growth so that it may more effectively act as a forum for international practitioners and supporters to learn, network and exchange professional expertise.

We are looking for diverse individuals who have an interest in MINN and a passion for the work we do. To best support MINN, we seek diversity in professional and educational expertise, knowledge, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

MINN Board members are expected to attend approximately 5 Board meetings a year, dedicate an additional six to ten hours per month to advance the Board and MINN’s work, and act as a champion for MINN among international NGOs and the broader community in Minnesota.
