About The Leadership Breakfast Series
Looking to get to the next level in your nonprofit career? At YNPN Twin Cities' Leadership Breakfast series, nonprofit leaders will share with you exactly how they did it, what they learned and what they're looking for in a rising nonprofit leader.
A little bit about Kristi Pearson, Executive Director of the Friends of the Hennepin County Library:
After serving four years on the Friends of the Hennepin County Library board, Kristi Pearson became executive director in 2014. She brings a passion for libraries and two decades of fundraising and marketing experience to her role leading the organization. Previously at AchieveMpls, Kristi led the development team through a transformative, multimillion-dollar fundraising effort. Earlier in her career, she spent several years in global sales and business development at Siemens, Eastman Kodak and British Petroleum.
The mother of three teens and an enthusiastic volunteer, Kristi was recently elected to the United for Libraries board and the Ziggy’s Art Bus board of directors. She previously served as board treasurer for Community Emergency Service and holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery
Registration for this event will be open from Monday, August 19 through Friday, August 23 EOD. We allow as many people to sign up for the event as possible, and from there we choose 25 participants at random, while also holding space for young nonprofit professionals who identify as a person of color. We do this to keep these events intimate while ensuring everyone has a fair chance to attend a Leadership Breakfast event. If you registered for the lottery and identify as a person of color, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.
Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Monday, August 26 letting everyone know whether or not they received a spot through the lottery. Lottery winners will be asked to submit a question for our speaker in order to confirm their space. Unconfirmed spaces will be given to members of the wait list.
- There will be a YNPN member on site to facilitate and help you get the most out of these discussions.
- Our media sponsor, Pollen, will be there to capture photos and provide an insightful article following the event.
