Michael Kuchta has been hired as the new District 10 executive director. Kuchta currently works as communications coordinator for AFSCME labor union’s Minnesota Council 5. He will begin his work with District 10 on Oct. 5.
Chairman Ryan Flynn said there were many highly qualified candidates, but Kuchta “stood out as a lifelong community advocate who has served in a variety of roles and has the skills necessary to excel in his new position.”
Kuchta has significant nonprofit experience, from working with smaller, more focused organizations, to working with larger nonprofits with a $2 million budget, Flynn said in an email he sent out announcing the Kuchta’s hiring. “He has a long history of working with, coordinating and aiding volunteers and planning the logistics for conferences, community initiatives and community campaigns. He has extensive experience with communication in both print and electronic publications.
“We are very excited to have Michael join us at District 10. His extensive experience working on behalf of different communities and his obvious dedication to public service make him a great hire for District 10.”
