As many of you know, Prospect Park Association's Community Outreach Coordinator for the last 6 years resigned in November, 2018. December's PPA Board action began the process to hire a new staff person for the organization. A job description for a new staff person was approved and two task forces were formed presenting opportunities for people to get involved.
The first task force will oversee the recruitment, hiring, and orientation of the new staff person. This process will take place over the next two months beginning immediately.
The second task force will work to develop a longer range plan for staffing. This task force will deliver its suggestion by the March PPA meeting. This task force will begin very soon.
Members of the community are invited to be involved in the process. Input from the wider community is encouraged to be sure the organization meets the needs of the community. Please contact Lynn Von Korff or Lydia McAnerney at to indicate which task force you would like to be on.
Some Background on PPA Staffing
PPA agreed to increased partnership with the City of Minneapolis Neighborhoods and Community Relations Department in 2016 which dictated operational requirements in exchange for an annual budget that afforded us with a means to pay for office space and a permanent staff person, initially in the form of a neighborhood coordinator and program manager. PPA staff, of course, includes many volunteer staff and interns, without whom we cannot function effectively.
