Saying Goodbye in GIFs: Part 1

We have six board members leaving this year, and couldn't think of a better way of honoring their service than the most characteristically YNPN-TC medium of communication: gifs. We asked each departing board member to choose a gif that represents a fellow board member and describe their choice. Here are your first three!

Sharing My Half-Baked Ideas with YNPN-TC: My Experience with 'Five Minutes in Hell'

Naaima Khan presents at \Are you planning to attend Five Minutes in Hell on October 23 at Honey? 2012 presenter, Naaima Khan, reflects on why she was thrilled to be a part of last year's event, and the rewards that came from sharing her inner musings with her nonprofit peers.

“If only nonprofit managers and staff understood how to inculcate and implement a culture of diversity and inclusion, there wouldn’t be so much conundrum and lack of action around the issue…”  There again ran my crazy, rambling thoughts as I walked from the conference venue back to my car. If only there was a call to action that would jolt nonprofits out of setting up fancy conferences to talk about diversity into action on embracing it, wouldn’t it be so nice? Such inner-promptings gave rise to many inner-monologues, which, again, gave rise to more inner-musings.

How'd You Like to Be A Member...with Benefits?

I remember the night well. It was last October, and the evening of the very first Five Minutes in Hell program. I was talking to a potential member who had arrived early.

“So,” I asked her, “Have you signed up to be a member yet? It’s free.”

“No, what kind of benefits do you get?” she responded.

“Well...,” I began lamely, “Um...I guess technically you can get all of the benefits of YNPN-TC without signing up, but there’s always the warm fuzzies of knowing you’re a member!”

Richard Matson-Daley on Five Minutes in Hell

speech.jpgLast week, we interviewed past speaker Richard Matson-Daley about his experience at the 2012 event:

What inspired you to present?

It sounded like fun. I had a couple of topics that were rattling around in my brain that doing a talk was a really good way to process. On a personal/professional development level, I wanted work on my speaking skills in a format I wasn’t used to, and in front of an audience that was different from the ones I had spoken in front of before.

Welcome YNPN-TC's Newest Volunteers!

by Brian Gioielli
Follow me on Twitter: @giosmelly

We here at YNPN-TC are busy! It’s been a wonderful 2013 so far, and 2014 will be no exception with the YNPN National Conference and some other exciting initiatives on the horizon. None of this would be possible without all the amazing volunteers on our Membership, Communications, Programming and Governance committees!

The past 6 months we have been lucky enough to welcome a number of amazing rockstars onto the team and here’s a chance to get to know a little bit about them. I’m personally inspired by all of these individuals and the things they are doing for our non-profit sector here in the Twin Cities and beyond. They are a true example of what a dedicated and committed group of volunteers can accomplish for a community.
