The June meeting of YNPN-TC’s Board of Directors marks the last of Kat Kempe as our Vice Chair.

The April 9th Minnesota Council of Nonprofits Technology and Communications Conference brought hundreds of non-profiteers to examine topics like web design, social media, technical project management, and more. As a member of YNPN, I was thrilled to receive a scholarship to the event.
