2nd Annual International Young Governors' Summit
June 19-21, 2014
Millennium Hotel, 1313 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403

This year, in Minneapolis, we will be asking important questions on the topics of board effectiveness, ethics, sustainability, and stakeholder engagement, as well as governance in the context of entrepreneurship and small businesses and non-profits. We will also be discussing diversity in the boardroom and hearing from young people involved in governance and their experiences on boards.

We are delighted to be attracting participants from around the world many of whom are looking forward to visiting Minneapolis for the first time and we hope many people from the Minneapolis area will join us. The International Young Governors' Summit is available at the subsidized rate of $150 which includes all three days of workshops, lunches and a dinner cruise on the Mississippi River!
