The New York City BID Association was formed in 1995 by the managers of the city’s Business Improvement Districts, and its membership consists of the managers of all of the City’s 74 BIDs. The Association’s members meet monthly in furtherance of its mission and to strengthen the profession of BID management. This all-volunteer Association is led by a Board of Directors that are elected by the membership for two-year terms. The Association has a variety of standing committees in which members can take part.
