MNHTTF membership is comprised of governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, and other committed stakeholders who actively contribute their organizational and individual expertise and perspective.
The MNHTTF functions both as a statewide resource for those working on the issue of human trafficking, as well as a mechanism for bringing diverse organizations and individuals together to change policies, systems, and environments related to the prevention of exploitation in Minnesota.
Organizations/agencies as well as individuals are welcome to participate in the MNHTTF. The MNHTTF recognizes that the level of commitment may vary depending on the organization/agency or individual. In order to be inclusive and to ensure a broad representation of experts and community members, the MNHTTF has established three categories of participation:
Task Force Member: Organizations/agencies or individuals that actively participate on a MNHTTF Subcommittee, regularly attend quarterly meetings, and are in agreement with the MNHTTF Principal Positions. Task Force Members are also part of the voting body of MNHTTF, which decides whether the task force will endorse legislative proposals that have been vetted through the MNHTTF Policy and Legislative Committee, as well as the Steering Committee.
Task Force Collaborative Partner: Organizations that represent the perspective of a key stakeholder group, send representatives to attend quarterly meetings, and agree with the MNHTTF Principal Positions. These organizations also contribute their expertise to MNHTTF initiatives when requested by the Steering Committee or a Subcommittee Co-chair.
Task Force Community Supporter: Individuals (students, community members, etc.) who wish to receive MNHTTF news and updates and attend quarterly MNHTTF meetings, but are not actively engaged in MNHTTF initiatives.
General Subcommittee Member Duties and Guidelines
Organizations/agencies or individuals that wish to be a Task Force Member are asked to actively participate on a MNHTTF Subcommittee.
Active participation on a MNHTTF subcommittee includes the following duties:
- Make a serious commitment to participate actively in the subcommittee’s work, including substantive participation in subcommittee meetings and discussions.
- Volunteer for and willingly accept assignments and complete them thoroughly and on time.
- Stay informed about subcommittee matters, come well-prepared for meetings, and review and comment on minutes and reports.
- Cultivate positive relationships with other subcommittee members and build a collegial working relationship that contributes to consensus and collaboration.
