Note from lars
Wow, huge thanks for all the wonderful nominations of Under the Radar Leaders and Community Connectors! Our inbox was stuffed full of deserving Twin Cities influencers! This volume's feature, Pollen Leaders, profiles all 278 of your nominations.
It's been a historic couple of days for Minnesota with the passage of the marriage equality bill — a time of celebration and pride for many Pollenites! And as always, we've got plenty of events, updates from Pollenites, and jobs for you in this volume.
We'd also like to alert you to an upcoming event that specifically aligns with Pollen and our mission: the Social Enterprise Alliance Summit. This national summit, focusing on "building an economy on purpose," is taking place in Minneapolis from May 19-22, and will be a gathering of more than 700 like-minded people intent on using social enterprise tools to change the world. Registration is open to the public, and Pollenites can get $50 off per ticket for the summit by using the code Pollen50 at checkout. This offer is good through Friday, May 17 at 9am.
If you have anything you’d like to share for Volume 76, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, May 30. Pollen wouldn't exist without your contributions, updates, and insights into our community — so please send all of your exciting news our way.
