Join us at LWVE's December 14 morning meeting
, to hear MJ Lamon, Community Engagement Manager for the City of Edina
discuss the Evolution of Boards and Commissions in Edina
Lamon will explain the recent changes to the application/interview/selection process used to choose community members for Edina's boards and commissions as well as the ongoing efforts to increase the diversity of board and commission membership. Boards and commissions play a significant role in engaging the community and developing future leaders, so it is critical that citizens have an understanding of how those groups are chosen.
Lamon has been with the City of Edina since 2014, starting as a part-time employee supporting the Neighborhood Association program, Boards and Commissions, and the Human Rights and Relations Commission. She helped lead Edina's Race & Equity Task Force and establish the city's formal volunteer program, Volunteer Edina. She has completed training by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) in its foundations and techniques course which is the platform for the City’s engagement strategy and also serves on the Midwest IAP2 board.
