HMC Entering Low-Power State

Posted on July 7, 2016 - 3:57pm

Due to a confluence of circumstances, Hamline Midway Coalition will be entering a low-power state for the indefinite future starting in early July, 2016. Kyle Mianulli, who previously served as the director of communications and engagement for the coalition, will be leaving HMC to pursue an exciting career opportunity with Hennepin County. Unfortunately, this opportunity comes at an inopportune time for HMC, as Executive Director Michael Jon Olson will be taking an indefinite medical leave starting immediately. 

Due to diminished staff capacity, HMC will be decreasing regular functions for the time being. The Executive Committee and Board of Directors are working with staff to develop a transition plan, which will allow the organization to maintain very basic operational activities, while more permanent solutions are developed.

The organization’s 12-person board made up of Hamline Midway neighbors, business owners, and community members, will continue to steer the organization, recognizing that with times of transition can also come great opportunity. More information about the current and future state of the organization will become known in the weeks ahead. If you have immediate questions regarding the transition, please contact Board President Steve Samuelson at ssamuelson11[at]comcast[dot]net or 651-226-8897
