The Men’s Center 37th Annual Meeting will be on
Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 9 am
at the Men’s Center in suite 55, 3249 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, MN

The Annual Meeting will include election of new members to the Board of Directors, thanks to our volunteers, review of our achievements this past year, and socializing with your fellow Men’s Center members. We have moved forward on many projects this year so come and celebrate what has been done and where we are going. If you have any questions, call the Men’s Center offices at 612-822-5892.

The Men’s Center By-Laws require a quorum of members to elect new board members. A vote will be conducted by all active members members who are present at this meeting. If you cannot attend and wish to vote, please return your Men Talk mailing with your address label. All members who do not vote by mail or in person, consent to the appointment of the Chair and the Vice-Chair the power to vote on their behalf, on all matters that come before the Annual Meeting.

Annual Facilitator Training

will be held Saturday January 10th, 2015 after the annual meeting which begins at 9am, and facilitator training will begin about 11:30a. We will take a lunch break about 1pm with a free lunch provided by the Men's Center and also a gift certificate! Training will continue after lunch. If you have your facilitator training manual, please bring it to the training session.

Randy Genrich and Norm Petrik will again lead this annual training to update facilitators on expectations for facilitators, including setting limits quickly if a group member expresses anger at another group member. We will give needed help on how to lead groups and share our experiences. I hope all facilitators and men interested in learning to become a facilitator, will come.

We very much appreciate your help for the Men's Center by facilitating!

Norm Petrik, Chair Program Committee
