Now you can post events, job openings, volunteer opportunities, and details about your organization by simply submitting the information through the MINN website.

You may have noticed that after five years as the Midwest International NGO Network (MINN), we have changed our name to the Minnesota International NGO Network (MINN).  This change was made to more accurately reflect the focus and strength of our network, as we pursue a nonprofit IRS registry as a 501 (c) 3.

It's a great opportunity to both exercise your leadership skills, increase your contacts among others that work in the international sector and add "Board Experience" to your resume.  

This is an opportunity for someone to become the Communications & Technology Committee Vice Chairperson to eventually become the Chairperson of the Committee.  In terms of time commitment, we suspect it is about a five hour commitment per month.

Midwest International NGO Network has filed its paper work to become a 501(c)3 with the IRS.  The decision was made late last year year by the Steering Committee to file for the 501(c)3 status in order to better position MINN for the future.  This effort was led by a three person team of Ken Schamberger, Paul Hanscom and Karen Baumgaertner.  MINN was also fortunate to receive pro-bono legal assistance from Robert Stuart and his colleague Jessica Manivasager from Fredrikson and Byron, P.A..  So what will this mean for other MINN members?  Tax deductions for donations will be main thing once
