Description

Learn how to build and maintain an effective Downtown Board of Directors.

Successful downtown development programs start at home—with a strong board that is proactive and engaged. As a board member, you must fully develop and utilize your leadership skills. The Board has a variety of critical functions, including:

• Setting policy
• Managing the budget and staff
• Raising funds
• Serving as advocate and ambassador for your downtown
• Listening and responding to your community’s needs
• Approving the direction and plan for downtown transformation

Without a strong board, local success in your downtown development may never come. Whether you represent a DDA or a non-profit, you will learn how to create and maintain an effective Board during this fast-paced workshop that takes a deep dive into developing a good board to lead your Main Street program to success.


Who Should Attend

• DDA and Main Street board members
• Local elected and appointed officials
• DDA and Main Street Staff
