Minneapolis Hosting Community Planning Meetings in May – technology is on the agenda

I’m sharing this for folks who are in Minneapolis but also for folks who aren’t but are looking for a model to get their community members together. They have 6 topics that relate to technology:

  • Access to Technology
  • Technology in the Economy
  • Technology in the City Enterprise
  • Data-Driven Decisions
  • Innovations in Transportation and Infrastructure

Here’s the info on upcoming meetings:
