Leadership

The Temescal Telegraph BID is presently composed of 11 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.

The June Promo/Safety Committee meeting has been canceled.
