The IDA Board of Directors establishes the strategic direction of the organization, provides financial oversight and serves as a direct connection to the profession. As individual practitioners, board members can advise IDA on issue affecting our member organizations while also serving as a peer to peer connection to the membership. The Executive Committee, as well as the full Board, are available for members to contact and engage.
IDA encourages all board members to be active leaders throughout committees, programs, and initiatives. Likewise, IDA provides members with opportunities to become more engaged with the profession by serving on committees, task forces, Top Issue Councils, and special projects. IDA members are invited to connect with IDA to further develop the urban place management profession and to gain leadership experience for possible future board service.
IDA committee and task force appointments are made by the IDA Board Chair annually each summer. A call for interest will be published and nominations accepted for consideration in advance of the annual conference at which time service commitments will be announced. Occasionally, special initiative opportunities can be announced and confirmed outside the regular schedule in the Inspired by IDA e-newsletter. A full listing of engagement opportunities is available for review at any time.
If you are interested in serving on a committee, task group, Council or special project please email David Downey for more information.
