@MinnesotaRising Conversation: You're Invited!

Just a few days after the one-year anniversary of the Minnesota Rising blog next week, it'll be time to start to manifest in the real world what I had hoped for this blog to be online. In the @MinnesotaRising Story, I laid out my thoughts about cultivating a group of peers, that over time and shared experiences, comes to power together with a shared vision for the common good. In effort to begin exploring this idea, and others, with relation to leadership development and community-building, I'm convening a conversation on Saturday, May 8, for those engaged with the various emerging leaders groups in the Twin Cities. See below for the Facebook invite (text below) and RSVP minnesotarising[at] if you want in.

Hi everyone,

On behalf of Minnesota Rising, I'd like to invite you to a conversation with young and emerging leaders across the Twin Cities. Minnesota Rising seeks to engage individuals and organizations focused on emerging professionals and leadership development based on the premise that our generational and geographic locations allow us the opportunity to come together, with our varied organizational and personal missions, to develop a greater vision and plan to strengthen our communities.

To that end, I'd like to invite you, your organizations, and anyone else you consider interested in the conversation around emerging leadership and community-building in Minnesota to participate in a conversation on May 8. The agenda would consist of informal and formal networking, mapping the various groups and efforts currently working to engage young professionals and emerging leaders, and an opportunity to brainstorm for future collaborative efforts, including joint events or an emerging leaders un/conference in Minnesota.

Following are event details:

Saturday, May 8, 2010
Minneapolis Central Library
300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, 55401
Room N-202

Thanks for your interest and willingness to engage! Thanks mostly for the great work you are doing on behalf of the rising generation in Minnesota.
