2018 Board Membership

Join the Board

Applications to Join the Board are now closed. Elections will take place July 16, 2018.

Read below for process, timeline, and application.


Serving on the Board of Directors is a rewarding volunteer opportunity. As a member, individuals have the opportunity to help navigate and oversee the organization’s mission and goals for the district and community. To serve as a Board member, individuals must be a property owner (7 seats), business owner (3 seats), resident (3 seats) within the District boundaries, or an 'at-large' (2 seats) representative. ‘At-Large’ seats can be resident, business owner, property owner, or community member (not bound by district boundary) serving to further the TLCBD's Core Purpose of Leading the evolution of the Tenderloin into a vibrant community for ALL.

Becoming a Board member, at the minimum, obligates you to at least 4-6 hours of Board and Committee meetings per month for two years, plus proactive volunteer work on behalf of the organization in resource development, outreach/community liaison, and commitment to special projects. Please note the Board attendance policy: Two (2) unexcused and three (excused) absences in a year of a full board meeting(s) could prompt an Executive Committee review and recommendation for removal from Board membership.
