Board Of Directors

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is primarily composed of rate payers from the Chinatown-International District Business Improvement Area.  These Directors guide and oversee the work of the organization and the use of rate payer funds.  There are thirteen board seats, of which no more than two may be non-rate payers.

Are you a CIDBIA ratepayer that would like to become more involved with the neighborhood? We will provide updates when new openings occur. 

Board Meetings

CIDBIA monthly board meetings are open to the public. Board meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, at 8:30am, via Zoom. Please contact us at, for the zoom meeting link.
