MFN offers two levels of membership: Standard & Student. Memberships are for one year.
Standard Membership: $50.00
The Standard MFN Membership entitles the member entry to all MFN Regular Meetings at the pre-registration member rate of $15 or $20 at-the-door. Non-members may pre-register for $25 or pay $30 at the door.
MFN has scheduled several public meetings in 2016, which feature an important topic on facilitation, a speaker-facilitator, networking opportunities with colleagues and a light supper.

As an additional benefit, Standard Members also have access to all MFN Virtual Meetings and other MFN events. MFN members may attend meetings of partner organizations at their member meeting fee. Partners include Performance Excellence Network, MN ODNetwork, Project Management Institute, MN Coaches Association, etc.

The Student Standard MFN Membership is designed to encourage students interested in facilitation to be connected with the professional community of facilitators while they are in school. If you are enrolled in a course of study at a college or university, then you qualify for this level of membership. A student may enjoy all the benefits of a Standard Membership (see above) at a fee level affordable for a student. Public meeting fee registration is $5.00, instead of $15.00, and student members may participate in any virtual meeting at no further cost.
This Membership Enrollment Period will end at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 14, 2016, because Eventbrite limits the amount of time a registration period can be open. We will create a new enrollment period after April 14 for future membership registrations.
