Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference: Building A Network For What’s Next!
The Un/Conference Crew is in full planning mode as we work to craft content for an incredible day of innovative learning by and for emerging leaders, reach out to old and new allies as part of our intentional network-building work across Minnesota, and to design the kick-off a two-year Cascading Conversations Tour to surface the makings of a generational agenda or operating principles. And we are excited! We welcome you to join us in any of the following ways:
Save the date for Saturday, October 22nd, at CoCo St. Paul and watch for Un/Conference registration to be announced!
Submit a proposal for a 50-minute breakout session or a 4-minute Show and Tell presentation!
