As a long standing non-profit technical society, we would not exist without support from local industry.  Every year the chapter gives thousands of dollars in scholarships to local university students, and hosts engaging technical and networking events.  None of this would be possible without financial sponsorship.  .  We are looking forward to another 100 years of Minnesota ASM.  Please consider a donation to help keep the chapter vibrant and strong for the next 100 years.  As part of the special gala celebration, chapter sponsorship options are available:
