Area non-profits gather to network


Non-profit organizations from across southern Minnesota are coming together and doing some networking.

The Minnesota Council of Non-Profits held this summit in Rochester Thursday.

170 leaders came to the meeting, to learn how to improve their groups, they’re also covering what can be done, so they  can better benefit the community.

The main focus today was on small to mid-sized organizations, because of the difficulties they can face.

“It’s really difficult to send staff to the twin cities or other places so to have these resources here, have them available it makes it a lot easier for non profits who are fairly small with limited budgets,” says Susan Strandberg, Community Development Officer.

The Minnesota Council of Non-Profits is looking at forming a chapter in south-eastern Minnesota, that would mean a possible location in Rochester.
