Leading into the Future: Trends and Opportunities for Leaders in SE MN

April 14, 2015

Location: Albert Lea, MN

Cohosted with the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation, this event gathered more than 150 community leaders to:

  • Learn about trends affecting their communities and region
  • Brainstorm opportunities for future collaboration given these trends
  • Identify resources to tap as they collaboratively work with these trends

The day included a keynote presentation from Dr. Louis Johnston, associate professor of economics at St. John’s University, a panel discussion with leaders from four multi-community collaborative initiatives, and information on funding opportunities available from the initiative foundation.

Videos of the full panel discussion (2 parts), and individual stories from the four communities are posted below.
