IAM hosted their revamped annual event Connect India on Saturday, February 7th, 2015 at the Wilder Center. Part of IAM’s mission is to serve as a focal point of contact between the many Indian organizations in the state. They achieved this goal by creating a platform for the various Indian regional organizations in Minnesota to come and share their plans for the year. This was a key networking event that served as an opportunity to interact with community leaders. Several non-profit organizations were given the opportunity to share their goals and missions.
