Are you pumped after an amazing weekend at Winter State? We are too! Seeing and meeting all kinds of amazing ladies who volunteer with the Women of Today from across the state inspires us to keep bringing our A-game up here in District 2. And we can’t wait to share all the awesomeness of northern Minnesota at Annual Convention! Wait? What? But we just had a convention, you say? We know, but we’re just so excited!
We’ve got some fun pre-convention action for you!
#mnwtroadtrip - Roadtrip anyone? Yes! As you make your way up north, be sure to share your pics en route with us and use the hashtag!
Spot the Lumberjack - take a selfie with Paul Bunyan, Babe the Blue Ox or Paul’s sweetheart, Lucette, from anywhere and post it on your Facebook page. Be sure to include #mnwtroadtrip to win a prize!
All internal and external state program areas shall be included in the three (3) year review process. A new area shall be added in Phase 1 (Implementation). Each internal and external area is assigned a phase number, (i.e., Phase 1, Phase 2 or Phase 3). Each phase is a one year period corresponding with the fiscal year of the Minnesota Women of Today. Each program follows the process indicated for that phase and at the end of the fiscal year rolls to the next phase in the model.
Phase 1 - Implementation: Implement any recommendations and/or eliminate programs or portions of programs.
Phase 2 - Extension: Continue the program as it stands with any recommendations carried forward to Phase 3. With limited exceptions, recommendations will not be considered until Phase 3. This phase allows the organization to look at the program as it stands and not change it in any major ways.
Phase 3 - Evaluation: Evaluate the programming area and finalize the recommendations to be presented at Winter State. Included in the evaluation process should be the current program manager, the previous program manager, the Executive Director, State President, the appropriate Vice President, and the appropriate past Vice President and Chairman of the Board. All approved changes would take effect at the start of the next fiscal year (Phase 1), remain in effect through Phase 2 and then be reviewed in Phase 3.
This allows any changes a two-year trial to see if they are needed in this program area.
There are 3 Programming Areas are being evaluated at this time.
At MNWT Winter State 2017, we honored six people for their contributions to their community. Since 1994 MNWT has annually presented the Outstanding Person with Developmental Challenges Award, which honors individuals who have overcome challenges and become productive, contributing members of the community. The Outstanding Young Adult Award has been presented by the Minnesota Women of Today since 1974. It is a scholarship project designed to recognize young adults who show excellence in leadership abilities and involvement in community activities.

2020 by 2020 was an idea brought up in a strategic planning committee meeting a few years ago. The
fall of 2014, saw a subcommittee formed to finally begin marketing two-thousand twenty members by
the year 2020. The committee will work with the President and her membership team to promote 2020
