Linda Offerdahl and her husband Richard moved to Incline Village from Minnesota in 1988 to start a family. They have been an integral part of the community ever since, serving on boards and engaging in philanthropy. Her local accomplishments include running numerous MOMS groups, early board member of the Children’s Cabinet, establishing the K-16 Council that first brought educational standards to Incline Schools, President of CYMBAL and board member emeritus, and board member of the Boys and Girls Club North Lake Tahoe when it established the Duffield Youth Center in Incline Village. She was one of the original founders of the Incline Star Follies when she was President of the IES PTA. She was President of AAUW from 1992-94 and was instrumental in growing the organization from 25 to 150 members. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline, where her accomplishments include President from 2017-18, and playing an active role in the Battleborn Chili Cook-off and Best Ball for a Cause fundraisers.
In 2006, Linda started her own business, Dress the Part(y) for Charity in the Village Center. Shortly after that, the original ICBA, was founded, then re-formed as the IVCBA, the Incline Village Crystal Bay Community and Business Association, in 2020. After graduating from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, Linda was a teacher for 5 years. At that time, she went back to school to get an MBA from the Thunderbird American School of International Management in Arizona. Before moving to Incline Village and “trading in the briefcase for a diaper bag”, Linda worked as a product manager for Lee Data in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
