St. Paul, Minn., January 23, 2012 — Sponsored by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and Minnesota Council on Foundations, Nonprofit Session Line Up will draw attention to the issues and proposals important to our state’s nonprofit organizations and the people they serve.

Over 250 nonprofit and philanthropic leaders are expected to attend this annual event and hear directly from the Governor and the leaders of the legislative caucuses as they share their priorities for the session, identify issues they think will dominate the debate and give their ideas on how nonprofits can be a resource to decision-makers and their staff. The leaders will also have a chance to address questions from the audience.
