YNPN Twin Cities invites you to attend:
Five Minutes in Hell
Monday, October 29, 2018
Check-in and networking from 5:30-6:00 PM
712 Ontario Ave W #100, Minneapolis, MN 55403
(Parking available nearby at Dunwoody College. Accessible via the 4, 6, 10 bus lines)
Join us at Sisyphus Brewing in Minneapolis, where you and your fellow YNPNers will bear witness to the brave souls who will each take the stage for a five-minute presentation on our theme of Nonprofit Nightmares.
This high-energy, fast-paced event is the perfect bite-sized opportunity to gain knowledge, meet some devilish young nonprofit professionals, and get a taste of what it's like to be in the hot seat.
Doors open at 5:30 PM and the program starts at 6:00 PM.
There will also be time to meet your fellow attendees after the presentations, so don't forget your business cards!
Snacks will be available, but feel free to bring along/order in dinner.
Meet your Master of Ceremony!
Sarah Crumrine is the Communications Coordinator at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. Outside of work, you can find Sarah watching old SNL sketches, attempting to rock at trivia nights, and tearing up at videos of soldiers surprising their kids and/or dogs. She's also a huge Harry Potter geek (and proud Hufflepuff), so pretend to be impressed if she mentions her replica Neville Longbottom wand, time turner necklace, or Triwizard Cup lamp.
Who's in the Hot Seat?
(If you would like to join these brave souls with a story of your own, submit your idea here!)
Alica Whitmore is well seasoned young non-profit professional, currently serving as the outreach coordinator for Prepare + Prosper.
Presentation Title: How to Recover from an Epic Fail
Sammer Elkhateeb is a motivational speaker who is sometimes de-motivational.
Presentation Title: When Comfortable Becomes Condescending
While presenting a topic to clients, my on-stage comfort level took a turn for the worst. What began as inspiring, spiraled downward, only to be saved at the end by ownership and humility...
Cole St. Arnold was born in the Midwest, raised in the Southwest, working on his Nonprofit Quest.
Presentation Title: Crash Override: The Importance of Avoiding Burnout
Working through my own experiences, I want to give some information to young nonprofit professionals on the absolute necessity of avoiding burnout in their careers. It can be easy to recognize the symptoms of burnout from the outside in but what if you're right in the middle of a burnout possibility?
Grace Riley is the linchpin who keeps the office together operationally and emotionally. Parts of Grace's brain are frequently on loan to office staff.
Nick Harper is the office curmudgeon, who at least says, "Um...," before saying, "No." He is a fierce protector of our 501(c)3 status.

League of Women Voters Minnesota has two seasons: voter service and advocacy. The two should not meet. However, reality, known as earnest members, often interferes. Months of putting out fires, after months of fire prevention work, leaves us with dreams of opened emails (we can see whether or not you did!). Also, it's lovely that you want to do voter registration. Really! But registration has closed. (Though, Minnesota has same day registration!)
Kristin Skaar has been coordinating nonprofit events in the Twin Cities since college. She's learned (and re-learned) a few lessons along the way.
Presentation Title: Don't Forget to Eat
Nonprofit event days can be crazy! What started with a missed lunch, went downhill fast! Soon plans A, B, and C went out the window.
