Expect intermediate to advanced level content. Monthly events usually take place every third Wednesday of the month and registration is always free for MIMA members.
MIMA's Meetup series is all about connecting, sharing and learning from your peers in the community.
With a focus on doing your job better and being a leader in today’s digital world, the Meetups aim to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing while provide a casual forum to meet fellow digital enthusiasts the Twin Cities. These gatherings are limited to 40 people and are exclusively for MIMA members.
Coffee + Case Studies
This member-only event series is intentionally smaller - limited to 40 attendees - to give MIMA members a chance to connect with each other in a more intimate setting and share some of the best examples of work from around town. You’ll see two case studies and will have the chance to ask questions and pick the presenters’ brains about exactly how and why they did what they did. You will walk away from the sessions with insights and tactical ideas you can apply in your job.
Summer and Holiday Socials
Twice a year, we invite our members and the community to join us for an evening of fun and networking with drinks, appetizers and often prizes courtesy of MIMA. The Summer Social takes play in early summer and the Holiday Social - in December.
Next event: TBA in June, 2017
