Como District 10 and Hamline Midway Coalition are both looking for new executive directors.
After almost six years in the position, Como District 10 Executive Director Michael Kuchta is moving out of state to become town administrator on Madeline Island.
The Como Community Council is seeking an executive director to provide leadership, vision, and the administrative foundation for the council, its activists, and its activities. The director often is the most-visible representative of the district council. The director’s ability to provide continuity and connections, to organize and mobilize community assets, to expand capacity, to navigate systems and personalities, and to combine practical and aspirational goals heavily influences the organization’s success. Learn more about the position at www.district10comopark.org. The initial review of applicants will begin May 20.
Longtime neighborhood resident Kate Mudge joined Hamline Midway Coalition as executive director in 2018. She and her wife moved to rural Ashby, Minn. late last fall, and she has accepted a position with West Central Initiative. She will be working on their Business and Economic Development team as a lending officer.
The effort to replace her will be led by the HMC hiring committee, which plans to post her position in mid-May.
Alec Armon is the new HMC Community Project Coordinator who replaced Melissa Cortez Michener. He gained experience in economic development working for an entrepreneurship nonprofit in Mexico City following graduation and most recently learned more about local government in his hometown through an internship with the city of Rochester.
