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.
Join the fun at Day Block Brewing Company as MINN partners with Global Minnesota in rebooting their young professionals networking series. Try your hand at international-themed trivia, network with others interested in what’s happening in the world, and enjoy a pint on us. Build a team with friends and colleagues or join one that evening. Registration is 10$ and includes one drink ticket and appetizers, including Day Block’s made-from-scratch specialty pizza.
Join us at the MINN Summit for a panel conversation in partnership with Books For Africa, a silver sponsor of the MINN Summit, featuring members of the African Diplomatic Corps. We will discuss pressing issues their countries are facing, development trends, and how global citizens in Minnesota can engage with their causes.
Introduction to panel: Pat Plonski, PhD, Executive Director, Books For Africa
Moderator: Jote Taddese, President of Books For Africa
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 us for a fun social/networking event open to all graduate level students at local universities/ colleges, whom are interested in international work. We're inviting current students in international development, public health, social work, nonprofit management, human rights, public policy programs (and others!) to meet for a couple hours of great beer and great conversation. This is a networking opportunity to meet other students with similar goals and interests
