A message from the president:

I hope this message finds you enjoying the summer months in the beautiful state of Michigan. I would like to personally thank you for your continued support of, and membership in, the Michigan Non-Profit Presenters Network (MNPN). I am honored and privileged to serve as the next president of MNPN and look forward to build on the solid foundation past leadership have provided for our association.

My immediate goal for MNPN is to determine what is important to you and your staff as members. It is you: your participation and creativity that makes up this organization and what will ultimately propel it forward. In the near future, we will be sending out a questionnaire that will solicit your input, helping to acheive that goal and find out how we can reduce the barriers to meeting attendance.

The sharing of knowledge, experiences and expertise is one of the most important aspects that have benefited me personally and professionally these past years with MNPN. From member discussions to speakers who presented on specific topics at our meetings, the sharing of ideas and strategies among fellow colleagues is a continual source of inspiration.

Once again, thank you for your membership and participation in the Michigan Non-Profit Presenters Network. My door is always open, so please do not hesitate to contact me with suggestions or ideas. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

Sincerely,
Bryan Jao
