Mankato - Winter Warrior - Lorie Shaull
Regional advisors are champions in their communities and help MCN better support Southwest Minnesota organizations. Who knows community needs better than passionate nonprofit staff?

That's why we need your voice and experience!

Joining MCN's Southwest Minnesota Regional Advisory Committee is a great opportunity to inform the sector about improvements needed in your community and influence MCN priorities in Greater Minnesota.

While the commitment to serve as a committee member is minimal with 1-hour meetings quarterly, your impact is big. Interested? Jes Wysong, MCN's Southern Minnesota Regional Coordinator. would love to talk with you.
