“Young professionals today want to have an active role in the development of the community in which they live and work. This event will provide them with information to help accelerate their knowledge of what to expect in various volunteer leadership roles,” said Talent Programs Director, Shannon Gullickson.

Participants will also have the opportunity to connect with several area nonprofit executives and board leaders during breakout sessions.

Gullickson added, “This event was planned entirely by committee members of the Greater Mankato Young Professionals. They are really excited to help their peers further their knowledge about volunteer leadership opportunities across the region.”
