MEET THE 2019 MCN BOARD CANDIDATES!

The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) is pleased to announce the following eight candidates for the upcoming MCN board of directors election. MCN member votes will select the next five directors for the upcoming three-year board term (2019-2021).

Eight candidates have been selected by MCN’s Board Nominating Committee to be on this year’s ballot for five open positions. The five candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected as MCN’s next board members.

Petitioning Process
MCN’s bylaws provide that any representative of a member organization may add his or her name to the election ballot by submitting a petition containing the signatures of representatives from five percent of MCN’s 2,200 voting member organizations. Candidates whose petitions met the requirements were added to the election ballot.  The petitioning process closes on October 24, 2018.

Voting
MCN members will receive an email with instructions on how to vote on November 1. Members may also vote at MCN's Annual Conference in St. Paul on November 14-15, 2018.  Stay tuned!
