The MCF 2010 Annual Convening Committee worked in partnership with MCF staff to define the convening theme, plan the agenda and format, identify idea session topics, and select keynote speakers and session presenters.

This year’s convening committee represents the full breadth of MCF’s membership, including representatives from greater Minnesota, from private, corporate and community foundations and giving programs, and from a diverse array of skills and backgrounds.
