MNCMNetworked is a great new way you can stay informed about what’s on the horizon for us all at MNCMN. As the current vice president and incoming president (later this year), I am honored to provide you with the latest update.
January 2019 marks MNCMN’s fifth anniversary. It has been amazing to see how this incredible organization has grown in membership since I first joined. I would like to thank all of you for being a part of the Minnesota Change Management Network and contributing to its greatness. We have a lot of other great events and activities in store for you in 2019 – below you’ll find some more details about some of our upcoming events. One to note is our five-year anniversary at this month’s summit. Be sure to watch for more updates in our emails, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more!
Finally, I want to thank our Board and Committee members. We could not be where we are today without their work – they volunteer countless hours of their time to discover new connections, plan events, manage logistics, and so much more.
