The Minnesota chapter of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP-MN) seeks new chapter leaders to begin serving in 2016.
EPIP is a national network of philanthropy professionals who strive for excellence in the practice of philanthropy. Chapter leaders provide leadership and direction to a growing network of emerging philanthropic leaders in Minnesota. We are looking for creative and strategic thinkers who can help propel the Minnesota chapter forward as we reach our 10 year anniversary. EPIP-MN is at an exciting moment in its evolution and chapter leaders will be active in its development and growth.
Becoming an EPIP-MN chapter leader is a great opportunity to build your governance skills, develop visibility and knowledge in the field, and make intellectual and organizational contributions to the EPIP network.
