The Temescal Telegraph BID is presently composed of 10 board members.

The Board's President, Vice-President I & II, Secretary and Treasurer make up the Executive Committee which helps manage and focus the Board's responsibilities.

We look forward to hearing from you and are actively seeking volunteers. All meetings are open to the public.

Note: During Shelter in Place in Alameda County, all meetings will be conducted via Zoom, which has video conferencing and call-in capabilities.

Due to conflicts with Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Board and DE/ED Committee meetings have both been cancelled for December 2021, and the Executive Committee meeting has been rescheduled. The meeting zoom links remain the same as for regularly scheduled meetings. The new meeting days are as follows:
December Executive Committee meeting - Friday, December 10th
