Board of Directors
The control and management of Chicago Loop Alliance and of its affairs, funds and property is entrusted to, and vested absolutely in the Board of Directors, insofar as may be permitted by law. A maximum number of 60 Board members are elected by the membership. Board members serve staggered 3 years terms and meet quarterly.
The Board of Directors selects and elects from its body a slate of Officers and a smaller Executive Committee (usually composed of 10-25 members). Because the Board of Directors meets only quarterly, they may opt to delegate their powers and duties to the Executive Committee, who meet as often as necessary (usually monthly) to oversee the day to day operations of Chicago Loop Alliance.
The Finance Committee oversees the Chicago Loop Alliance budget and works to ensure that organizational resources are used as effectively as possible.
The Gala Committee coordinates all of the various aspects of planning that are required for the annual Chicago Loop Alliance Foundation Gala.
The Marketing Committee works to promote the Loop as a premiere destination for people doing business, shopping, going to school, or sightseeing.
The Membership Committee develops and coordinates Chicago Loop Alliance events, reaches out to prospective members and advises CLA members about benefits & incentives.
The Placemaking Committee consists of urban planners, architects, property owners, academics, technologists, and other downtown stakeholders who meet regularly to seek ways to enrich the public’s experience of the urban environment–ultimately creating a strong sense of local character.
Planning & Advocacy Committee
The Planning and Advocacy Committee addresses construction, development, and renovation issues and plans that concern the Loop.
