Leadership

So who’s in charge around this joint?

There are a bunch of people who do their best to keep the region ticking along.  Look for bright blue T shirts or lanyards at official events.  Any ML or Minion will be happy to help you in any way they can.

Do YOU want to be leadership?  There’s always room for more volunteers in the Minion Army.  All you need to do is tell an ML and they can give ;you plenty to do.  🙂

Here’s the official Minion job description:  NaNoWriMotown Minion Program
