YNPN-TC Evangelists| Do you love YNPN-TC? Would you like to volunteer to network with Cary Walski, the membership chair, on behalf our organization with potential external partners like HR professionals at major nonprofits across the Twin Cities? We’re hoping to kick-off an intra-sector advocacy effort, and need members who feel passionate about YNPN-TC to simply have conversations about YNPN-TC with non-members in the nonprofit sector.
People Who “Know a Guy”| Do you have connections to orgs who might be willing to connect YNPN-TC members with discounted tickets to events and other fun stuff happening around the Twin Cities? If so, we’d love to connect with you!
