The Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op together are governed by an elected Board of Directors. In the consolidation of the Wedge and Linden Hills board, each board independently elected three individuals to move forward to the new board. That group of six individuals then recommended a seventh board seat, along with a chair emeritus position.
The new board members include individuals from each legacy co-op board: Emily Anderson (two-year term), Matthew Larson (two-year term), Sarita Parikh (one-year term), Emily Paul (one-year term), Tom Pierson (three-year term), Jane Schommer (one-year term), and Alex Slichter (three-year term). The temporary chair emeritus position (ending in fall 2018) is being filled by Marjorie Hegstrom. The chair emeritus is a non-voting, advisory position, attending all regular board meetings, executive sessions and special board meetings. Marjorie served on the Wedge board for seven years, including serving as president from 2015 to 2017. We welcome her continued service, insight and leadership during this pivotal time.
