#mnrising 2012 Un/Conference Planning
Minnesota Rising’s third annual Un/Conference is slated for Fall 2012 and we’re hard at work on crafting an amazing event hosted for and by emerging leaders. 
Feel free to join us in person at any of this summer’s planning meetings and work with our Logistics, Content, and/or Outreach committees to plan and host an incredible event. Our next meetings are July 5 and July 13 at Grassroots Solutions offices, and we’d love to see you there! 

Cascading Conversations Tour Advance Team
The “Our Minnesota” Cascading Conversations Tour is well underway and we’re excited to see feedback coming in from across the state. Members of the Advance Team have already hosted 70+ conversations with young Minnesotans about their values and visions for the future of Minnesota! To continue building momentum, we’re inviting more folks to join the group of conversationalists connecting with other emerging leaders and building the Minnesota Rising network. Let us know at minnesotarising[at]gmail.com if you want to become part of the Advance Team or if you’d like to request an invitation to a single hourlong conversation with a member of the Advance Team. We welcome you to join the cascade!
