IT TAKES LEADERSHIP TO DRIVE AN ORGANIZATION FORWARD.

MNRS is a membership run organization. Board and committee members who generously lend MNRS their time, talents, and expertise work alongside our Executive Office staff to maintain the momentum we see today.  Our Board of Directors is tireless in their pursuit of ensuring the MNRS is ethical, inclusive, diverse, relevant, and financially sound.  We are thankful for the leadership that is represented through our Board of Directors and know that the future is bright for MNRS!
