Hamline Midway Council News


By MELISSA CORTES, Community Organizer

Board recruitment

Hamline Midway Coalition is governed by a volunteer board. Serving on the board is a way to serve your community and help make decisions about land use and development, transportation, sustainability, and community building. There are nine elected board members and four appointed seats. All board members are elected or appointed for three-year terms. Elected members are voted in by the community in an annual neighborhood-wide election. Terms are staggered such that every year three seats are up for election—one from each of the three sub-districts in the neighborhood. If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact Executive Director Kate Mudge at kate@hamlinemidway.org.

Interested in joining the Board of Directors? Anyone interested in running for an elected seat on the Board of Directors must return a completed application to the Executive Director no later than 5pm, Mon., Nov. 19.

Applicants must be 16 years of age or older and reside within, own property, or own a business in the Hamline Midway neighborhood. More information can be found at http://www.hamlinemidway.org/about/board.
