Minnesota Furs Open Forum November 10

For those that haven’t seen yet or will likely see soon we now have now a formal operating board. As part of the process of becoming a nonprofit there will be open forum meetings with the board to be apprised of new developments, get feedback, and many other items. The first one has already been scheduled, in fact!

The first open forum meeting for MNFurs will be held November 10th, 2012. It is the furmeet before MFF. It will be held at Perkins, starting at 3pm. This will give 1 1/2 to 2 hours before the meet for this meeting. Topics for discussion include an introduction to the board, where things currently stand with the group, what major events and tasks are in the queue to be done, and most importantly, an open question section where you can ask things of the board.

Planning on going? Want to but unable? Have questions about the meeting or that you want brought up at the meeting? Talk about it here! Or if you want, feel free to use the new forum just for interacting with the board, the Board Dialog forum.

A Message From The MNFurs Board

You told us you wanted more. You told us you wanted things to run smoothly. You told us that we're not just a fandom, we're a community. We're on it. Two years ago, the Steering Group was created to help with communication and coordination of all the great stuff we do as MNFurs. As we grew, it became clear we needed to raise our game to the next level. We've finished our incorporation process, and now have a Board to manage our affairs. Kurst, Aerak, Lego, Zmeydros, and Ridayah have agreed to serve and were elected at our open meeting last Saturday announced here.


What do these changes mean for you? In the short term, not much! If you have an event or program you want to propose, continue to use our event submission form. Long term, incorporating will allow the group to start building towards more stable year round programs and lay the foundations of our upcoming convention. In the meanwhile, please feel free to drop in on our new forum for board dialog. Watch for more as it develops!


We want to thank the Steering Group and all of the people who have volunteered to help at our events in the past, and those who will do so in the future. Thank YOU, for making this community so amazing.
