Meyer Becomes Interim Executive Director
At the end of July, OutFront Minnesota Executive Director Amy Johnson is stepping down from the position she took over in January 2009. She was instrumental in guiding the organization through a challenging economic environment. An attorney in private practice before assuming leadership of OutFront Minnesota, she came to it with a long track record of volunteer service with other Twin Cites GLBT groups.
OutFront Minnesota Board Chair Ann Swanson said, “On behalf of the board and staff, we thank Amy for her leadership at OutFront and in the GLBT community.”
Longtime OutFront Minnesota Public Policy Director Monica Meyer becomes its Interim Executive Director effective July 31. She is a veteran public policy organizer and community advocate whose expertise and influence at the State Capitol will be key to advancing the organization’s agenda for equality in this year’s elections. In addition to her role at OutFront Minnesota, she is also Board Chair of TakeAction Minnesota, a progressive advocacy organization.
Johnson remarked, “Monica’s commitment to OutFront Minnesota and to the community it serves statewide is an invaluable asset to the organization.”
