Item 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On April 10, 2019, Tom Klein, a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Cedar Fair Management, Inc., the general partner of Cedar Fair, L.P. (the “Partnership”), resigned as a member of the Board effective immediately. Mr. Klein served on the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board. Mr. Klein advised the Partnership that his decision to resign from the Board was not the result of any disagreement with the Partnership on any matter relating to our operations, policies, or practices.

On that same date, the Board elected Richard Zimmerman, who currently serves as our President and Chief Executive Officer, to replace Mr. Klein on the Board. Mr. Zimmerman will serve for the remainder of Mr. Klein’s term as a Class III director expiring at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Limited Partner Unitholders. As of this filing, we do not expect Mr. Zimmerman to be named to any committees of the Board. Mr. Zimmerman receives compensation in connection with serving as our President and Chief Executive Officer, and we did not modify his existing compensation arrangements or award him additional compensation for serving as a director in connection with his appointment to the Board.
