You're Invited | Sunshine and Showers: A Nonprofit Forecast for 2012

I'm excited about this upcoming Young Nonprofit Professionals Network - Twin Cities event with The Theater of Public Policy for a number of reasons. First, it involves improv. Second, there are some prominent and knowledgeable nonprofit women leaders sharing their insights and predictions as to what 2012 holds. Most importantly, though, I'm excited because these two groups first connected at the Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference! Collaboration borne out of collaboration. My predicted forecast? Pure sunshine!

Sunshine and Showers: A Nonprofit Forecast for 2012

YNPN is thrilled to partner with the Theater of Public Policy on January 27 to help forecast what 2012 has in store for the nonprofit sector. Come hear local luminaries talk about what they think the new year holds for the nonprofit world and stay to see their predictions played out (literally) by a group of improv professionals.

First, find out what nonprofit experts Marcia Avner, Senior Fellow for the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, and Shelia Smith, Executive Director of the Minnesota Center for the Arts, foresee for 2012. Then watch the improv artists from the Theater of Public Policy demonstrate these predictions before your very eyes. You'll also

  • be able to network with other YNPN members,
  • get a taste of improv theater (widely acclaimed to help professionals think more creatively and nimbly in a professional setting), and
  • equip yourself with what you need to know to be a more strategic nonprofit professional in 2012.

It'll be fun, we promise! Hope to see you there!

TICKETS: $5 for YNPN-TC members, $10 for non-members. (All proceeds go to the Theater of Public Policy and the Lowry Lab Theater.)**
