The MMA Board of Directors is pleased and excited to announce new leadership for MMA. The MMA Board hired a search consultant in August to assist the Executive Committee in hiring a new Executive Director for MMA. The consultant then conducted an assessment of potential interested internal candidates and made a recommendation to the Board hiring committee, which was then forwarded and acted on by the full Board.
Gary Kloos, currently MMA President, has been selected and has accepted the position of Executive Director of MMA effective November 5th.
Gary comes with a wealth of experience as a supervisor with the State of Minnesota in the Department of Transportation. As president of MMA, Gary was recently featured in our ‘Getting to Know you’ column which you can review here if you missed it.
The MMA Board is also pleased to announce, as per our constitution, that Kathy Hanson, MMA Vice President, will now assume the role and duties of President.
Kathy has served on the Board of Directors since April of 1993 and has served as Treasurer since April of 2003. Please see the related article for more information about Kathy.
The MMA Board and Staff are excited and energized to continue the work of MMA with our new leaders.
