The board of directors will consist of 9–17 members, including representatives of Congress Heights Development and Training Corporation, business and property owners, developers with projects underway within and surrounding the Saint Elizabeth’s campus, and representatives of existing service, cultural and civic institutions. Voting members will be elected to the three-year terms with an election held each year at an annual meeting. Approximately one-third of the board will be elected each year.
The executive committee will serve as the primary governance contact with the executive director and will include officers appointed by the board chair and confirmed by the board. It will guide the day-to-day operations and practices of the organization.
The Congress Heights Partnership will employ an executive director who will have the overall responsibility for the management of day-to-day programs, oversight of its finan- cial and operating performance, and strategic direction for the organization. The direc- tor will ensure that the organization follows the policies and procedures as promulgated by the board of directors. The director will represent the organization to its members, the community, the media, and the local government.
The organization will be governed by a board of directors who will set broad policies and goals; an executive committee of officers and appointed board members; and a chief executive officer who will manage the day-to-day affairs of the organization.
