      Main Street Oakland County – Effective Boards Aren't Built in a Day

      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.
