Managing a downtown is complex, vital work. At CMSC, we recognize that sometimes our downtowns need specialized, in-depth expertise beyond what CMSC can provide. It’s why we created our Professional Affiliate network, to provide our communities with access to professionals in the fields of downtown revitalization, preservation, economic & community development, land use, transportation and more.
That’s why we take pride in connecting our Professional Affiliates with our 80+ member communities statewide.
Our Here to Help guidebook shares each Professional Affiliate’s field of expertise, local contacts and where to reach them with our member network, comprised of downtown professionals, municipal officials and local stakeholders.
Interested in becoming a Professional Affiliate? Contact Carl Rosa, Field Services Director.
