Minneapolis: -- Mary-Margaret Zindren has been selected as the next executive director of the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA), beginning her new position on December 13. Zindren follows Larry Buxbaum, who retired earlier this year; she will become the HCBA’s seventh executive director.
Zindren worked for over a decade with the League of Minnesota Cities, most recently as the director of communications and strategic initiatives where her work focused on promoting the value of city services and improving the public perception of local governments. Prior to her work for the League of Minnesota Cities, she was a lobbyist for the National League of Cities and also held positions with a public relations firm and the Office of the Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio.
“We are excited to have Mary-Margaret Zindren joining the HCBA as its new executive director,” said HCBA President Jewelie Grape. “The Search Committee was very impressed with her strategic focus, association management experience, and history of service with member organizations.”
Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Zindren moved to the Twin Cities nearly 14 years ago. Zindren graduated from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) with a bachelor’s degree in public administration. She is currently completing a Masters of Public Affairs from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
Zindren and her husband, Sean Zindren, live in St. Paul with their two daughters, Anna and Olivia. Outside of work, Zindren most enjoys hiking and agate hunting on Lake Superior’s North Shore.
Zindren’s experience will serve her well as she serves the bar association’s 8500 members.
