CBID membership is limited to individuals, businesses, and organizations who own property within the Central Business Improvement District. However, CBID relies upon the energies and vision of community volunteers to develop and execute its plans and programs. Anyone with an interest in the future of downtown Knoxville is encouraged to attend Board meetings or join a CBID committee.
An active board of directors and standing committees focus on four principal areas: development, marketing and events, security and parking/transportation. Board members are elected for three-year terms and officers serve one-year terms. Membership to committees is open and volunteer involvement is encouraged.
