Annual Meeting 2013

     Join us for the 2013 JASM Annual Meeting on the evening of February 20th, 2014. At the Annual Meeting, we will share with everyone the successes and challenges of the past year, elect new JASM Board Members, and discuss some of the exciting plans that JASM is planning for in 2014.

 In addition, it is our pleasure to announce we will have Jon Pratt, the Executive Director of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, talk about what is means to be a nonprofit organization in the currently challenging financial times, and the role that nonprofit organizations take on in the community. He has worked at Minnesota Public Interest Research Group as an attorney and lobbyist, as regional director at the Youth Project, and as director for the Philanthropy Project. In 1987 he became director of MCN, an association of 2,000 organizations that sponsors research, training, lobbying and negotiated discounts to strengthen Minnesota’s nonprofit sector.

     Jon has consulted with nongovernmental organizations on the development of NGO associations and services in Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Serbia and Turkey. Pratt has a law degree from Antioch School of Law, and a M.P.A. from Harvard University.

     New JASM members are especially encouraged to use this event as an opportunity to network and meet other JASM members in an informative meeting setting. We welcome both JASM corporate and individual members to attend this important JASM gathering. Light refreshments will be served.
