Requesting RFPs: Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference

It's that time of year again and we on the planning committee for the Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference: Building A Network For What's Next are so excited to announce that we are now requesting proposals for breakout sessions and Show and Tell presentations at this year's event! See below for more details, share them with your friends and colleagues, and please consider submitting something yourself by Friday, September 9, 2011!

Founded in 2009, Minnesota Rising is the network of emerging leaders in Minnesota. Minnesota Rising works to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for the future of Minnesota, and engages emerging leaders and young professional organizations to work toward that call both now and in the future. Through Minnesota Rising’s online presence, annual Un/Conference, Minnesota Rising Council, and research, we are building the collective capacity of this generation for impacting Minnesota's future.

The Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference: Building A Network For What's Next will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 10:00AM - 6:00PM at the CoCo coworking and collaborative space in St. Paul, MN. The daylong Un/Conference will bring together emerging leaders for innovative learning and dialogue, skills-building, and network-building with their peers. Content for the Un/Conference is developed by and for emerging leaders in our community in order to showcase this generation's talent and knowledge. The Un/Conference will feature three periods of five 50-minute breakout session options for attendees, as well as several 4-minute Show and Tell presentations to the large group. The Un/Conference Content Committee is now accepting proposals for presentations of unique topics that would be of interest to our target audience.

We are looking for proposals for 50-minute breakout sessions that fit into the following 2011 Un/Conference Tracks:

Track 1: Me, Myself, and Minnesota | Personal Cultivation
Focused on self-leadership and personal development, particularly as it relates to being an active citizen in Minnesota. Sessions should allow for self-reflection and life skills-building.

Track 2: COM.MN Cause | Organizational Evolution
Focused on skills and practices to improve organizational capacity of emerging leader groups and community organizations. Sessions should highlight organizational development, management, and team-building principles.

Track 3: Making Our Mark on Minnesota | Public Leadership
Focused on opportunities for individuals and institutions to contribute to the existing civic infrastructure of Minnesota. Sessions should leverage tools of collaborative leadership and urge re-envisioning community engagement.

Track 4: State of the State + Future State | Generational Emergence
Focused on question of how emerging leaders can develop relationships, trust, and a shared vision for the future of Minnesota. Sessions should provoke questions that advance strategies around movement-building and developing a common generational agenda or operating principles.

Have an idea you want to test out? Have unique expertise you want to share? Want to begin a dialogue with other emerging leaders about how our generation can improve Minnesota? We invite you to submit a proposal for a session at this year's event! We are accepting proposals until Friday, September 9, 2011 and look forward to your submission!
