[Minnesota Rising] December 2010 Update

Minnesota Rising 2010 Un/Conference Recap
Thanks to all of you who attended the Minnesota Rising 2010 Un/Conference! Nearly 70 of you made your way to CoCo, fighting the snow, traffic, and Saturday morning sleepiness (and some of you from Rochester, no less) to attend an amazing and historic event with your fellow emerging leaders! The day's discussions were engaging, the participants were thoughtful, clever, and fun, and the outcome clear: we're committed to working together, now and for the years to come, to make our mark on Minnesota! If you haven't filled out the event evaluation, please do so by Friday, December 10, 2010, so we can pass remarks on to presenters and share ideas at Saturday's strategy session!
