Join the Main Street Board!

The Marietta Main Street Board of Directors is a group of passionate, connected, dedicated, and inspired individuals who work hard, dream big, and genuinely enjoy their time connecting to one another. Our Board of Directors leads the way for Main Street by guiding our programs, increasing our impact, and growing our capacity to meet our mission of revitalizing the place we love most: downtown Marietta.

Have you served on a Main Street Committee? Enjoyed one of our events? Donated to our organization? If you have a heart for supporting the nonprofit sector and want to be a part of positive change in our community, the Main Street Board of Directors might be the right fit!

Members of the Main Street Board of Directors have the responsibility of leading our organization, serving on a committee, supporting fundraising efforts, volunteering at events, celebrating our accomplishments, and problem-solving obstacles we may face along the way.

As you might know, Marietta Main Street has one staff member - our Executive Director Cristie Thomas - and our Board of Directors supplements her efforts by supporting programs, planning events, and charting the way together, as a team.

Each member of our Board is guided by a different passion and brings a different set of skills to the table; our diversity is what makes our Board work. We need members of the Marietta community from all walks of life, with different perspectives and varying talents, all committed to one thing: revitalizing downtown.
