CCBA seeks program manager

The Columbia City Business Association (CCBA) is seeking a program manager to assist the CCBA in implementing a multi-faceted business district "Action Plan". The opportunity is an 8-month-long contracted position, with the potential of continued work in subsequent years depending on funding and performance.

The Action Plan consists of some 25 strategies grouped into five topical areas: organization and outreach; business development; safety and cleanliness; marketing and promotion; and pedestrian environment. A base contract amount of $40,000 is anticipated, with the potential for an additional performance-based incentive. The program manager will work as an independent contractor.
