Participation Incentive Program (PIP)

In 2020, the MN NIGP Board has launched a new program called the Participation Incentive Program, or PIP, to incentivize membership engagement within the Chapter by earning points for different levels of participation in Chapter events.  Accumulated points may be used to obtain established rewards.

PIP was previously unveiled at the 2020 spring conference and briefly discussed at the May chapter meeting.  To learn more about PIP, log-in to the "Members Only" area of the MN NIGP website, and click the "Participation Incentive Program" link under the list of "Members Only Links."  Note, this new page of the website will be updated to include a PIP tracking tool to monitor your accrued points.  An annoucnement will be sent when this tool is ready to view.

 

CLASS CANCELLED - APRIL 3

With the most recent news around COVID-19, the continued government restrictions, and our focus on the health and safety of our participants and instructors, NIGP is cancelling all travel for our instructors through April 30, 2020.

If you have courses scheduled through April, we will be contacting you in the coming days to discuss either a virtual option, rescheduling, or cancelling. As part of our response to current events, we have reviewed current course offerings and identified several virtual options that you may want to consider. We have an identified pool of 17 instructors who have offered to teach courses virtually. 

NIGP continues to monitor this emerging and rapidly evolving situation and we will keep you updated on courses scheduled from May – July

MN NIGP course to be held on April 3 in Lakeville, Protests: Managing Options for Positive Results, is cancelled.
