It's your Downtown - increase your impact!

The Downtown Albany BID is seeking nominations for candidates to join the Board of Directors beginning August 1, 2021 and serve three-year terms.

We encourage you to nominate a colleague - or yourself - to serve in one the following open positions (definitions below per our by-laws):

  • (3) Class A Property Owner Board positions - Owners of record of real property in the District as are registered with the City of Albany to receive real property tax bills for such real property located within the District, shall be Class A members of the Corporation, provided such persons have applied for membership in accordance with Section 1e hereof or have become owners of record on the rolls of the City of Albany by the September publication of such records by the City of Albany. Owners of properties wholly exempt from real property taxes are not eligible for membership, nor representation on the Board of Directors as Class A Property Owners, unless said ownership provides a payment in lieu of the property tax.
