In 2011 the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits began hosting an annual conference for nonprofits in regional centers, small towns, and rural communities. On March 10, we're pleased to bring this engaging event to Marshall for the first time! This day-long summit is designed to bring together staff, board members, and volunteers from across southwest Minnesota to learn, network, and strategize.
Whether your work stretches across multiple counties or is focused on one small town - nonprofits face many of the same issues. And these issues play out differently in every one of our communities. The regional conference will take time to explore what it means to be a nonprofit in Southwest Minnesota
This year's theme is Bright Futures, Vital Communities. Together we will tackle some of the most important perennial themes for nonprofits in Greater Minnesota including leadership, fundraising, communications, and engaging diverse communities. Throughout each discussion, we'll look at the ways that these issues play out in our Greater Minnesota communities and we'll highlight opportunities for building a revitalized landscape for all.
