FDA Board of Directors Elections and
Making a Difference in Your Community
The FDA will be conducting an election for all eleven seats on the Board of Directors.
Creating a vibrant downtown is an exciting opportunity. It is a chance to make a difference in creating a sense of community in Fairfield. Building a vigorous capable leadership team is the foundation of a strong organization.
As a Main Street program, the Fairfield Downtown Association (FDA) Board of Directors is responsible for the organization's activities advocating for Main Street revitalization principles. Together, Board members are responsible for FDA policy, planning, committee oversight, funding and financial management, advocacy and program evaluation. Reviewing the budget and monitoring program effectiveness are key components of the Board's role.
The future of downtown Fairfield is in your hands. I hope you will help us to make it a place we can all be proud to call home.

As I look back on the last quarter of 2009 at the Fairfield Downtown Association, one of the things I am most thankful for is that after years of closing the year in the red, we ended 2009 in the black. In these challenging times that is particularly meaningful.
