ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Change is coming for Mayo Civic Center as operations head in a new direction. Part of those changes include a new board of directors – which were named Monday night.
It was an unanimous vote Monday night and the new MCC and Visitors Bureau Board of Directors was approved.
It was in November that Rochester city leaders decided to revamp the way MCC operates. City administratro Steve Rymer says its a huge milestone in moving forward with the new model. He add the entire transition is set for a year long.
Out of 18 applicants, five were chosen for the board, one of them, Sara Clausen. Clausen says although change can be hard, she’s confident in her team.
“I’m excited about the colleagues that have been chosen to serve on this board along with myself,” Clausen said. “I do feel like there’s a vast majority of people on the board with different experiences and opinions and ideas that will really give a whole new outlook to the Civic Center.”
The work begins right away. The board’s next goal is to hire an executive director sometime this summer.
