Net Impact Board Elections!

August 13th – 6:30-8:30, Common Roots Café, 2558 Lyndale Avenue, Minneapolis.

Looking for professional development and leadership experience outside of work?  Join the Net Impact Minneapolis Professional Chapter board.  We’ll be filling all six of our Officer positions as well as seven At-Large seats, all for one-year terms.  We’d love to have you on Board.

We’ve done a lot of work in the past year, including filing for official Non-Profit status, refining our Digital and Social Media presence, and securing potential funding for the coming year. We’re in a great position to leverage some of the hard work we’ve done and we’re looking for engaged members with fresh ideas and lots of energy to help carry out our vision of using the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.

Join the board to plan events & activities supporting the vision while networking with like-minded professionals.  New faces welcome and creative ideas encouraged!

If you’re not able to attend the meeting, but would still like to be involved, please e-mail us at and we’ll get in touch to discuss!
