What we're about
Have you lived in more than one country, traveled to many countries, worked in a multicultural setting, or have many friends from different backgrounds? Then this group is for you!
We're not your typical "armchair travelers"... we've truly "been there, done that!" While we enjoy living here, we don't believe that Minneapolis / St. Paul (MSP), USA is the center of the known universe.
While there are many great local groups for expats and specific languages or cultures, we want to bring everyone together for a truly global experience!
We encourage all group members with a great idea to lead an event or series of events. Please see our Member and Event Host guidelines (http://www.meetup.com/MSP-Multicultural-Club/about/) for additional details.
The MSPMC group organizers pay for all Meetup fees and event supplies out of their own pockets. Anything you're willing to contribute would be much appreciated! Cash donations are preferred to avoid the WePay (https://secure.meetup.com/MSP-Multicultural-Club/contribute/)) transaction fees.
