Carbondale, IL Main Street Has a New Executive Director 2024

Carbondale Main Street IL

Over four months this winter in 2023-2024, we consulted with the Carbondale IL Main Street organization to assist them in their search process as they hired a new Executive Director. We organized and staffed a Search Committee, created committee agendas, set up Zoom meetings, and provided professional guidance on the search process. We engaged with both the Board and Search Committee to help interview a fine roster of candidates. The Board has chosen Matt Collinsworth, a highly qualified candidate to be their new Executive Director and he has already started work.

As part of this assignment, the Board also wanted a wholesale review of their bylaws so they would mirror the actual structure and workings of the organization. We staffed a Bylaw Review Committee and made many revisions to the existing bylaws, which were adopted by the Board in January 2024. Carbondale Main Street is now in a much better position to advance the organization and meet the challenges and opportunities ahead in their downtown district.
