Nominate an Emerging Leader!

Each year, YNPN Twin Cities partners with Minnesota Council of Nonprofits to present the Catalytic Leader Award, which recognizes an emerging leader in our sector.  Nominations close on April 20th, so be sure to nominate someone today!

The criteria for the award is:

  • Effectively leads from the middle and uses informal authority to shape the direction and progress of his/her work, and that of the organization.
  • Understands how to help move change forward in an organization by effectively communicating with key internal and external stakeholders to help them understand, and participate in, the change process.
  • Has helped shape his/her organization through strategic change that is beneficial to the staff, board, organization and community.


The prize for the Catalytic Leader Award is a “golden ticket” for free individual registration to any/all MCN-sponsored conferences and trainings for 12 months. The award recipient may attend the MCN annual conference, technology conference, leadership conference and any of MCN’s nonprofit workshops offered throughout the year. This prize is valued at over $1,000.
