bushCONNECT – or bushCON for short – is a leadership networking event that builds stronger and more meaningful connections among leaders in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography.

bushCON is powered by the Bush Foundation in partnership with more than 40 organizations from the region. The day includes inspiring talks, engaging small-group sessions, conversations with community leaders, and interactive networking experiences, all designed to inspire, equip and connect leaders for success.
