Call for BID Board nominations
It's your Downtown - increase your impact!
The Downtown Albany BID is seeking nominations for candidates to join the Board of Directors beginning June 2023 and serve three-year terms.

We encourage you to nominate yourself and/or your colleagues to serve in the open positions outlined below:
Time commitment: The BID Board meets 8 times per year for (on average) 1-2 hours per meeting. Board members are also encouraged to serve on Economic Development, Clean & Safe, Special Events, or Marketing Committees, each of which meets quarterly for approximately 1 hour.
Open Board positions (definitions per the BID's by-laws):
