Organizational Assessment for the Trenton Downtown Association

Trenton Downtown Association, Trenton NJ

In June 2021, the Board of the Trenton Downtown Association, a large business improvement district in New Jersey’s state capital, invited Heritage Consulting Inc. to learn about and assess its current needs as they began a search for a new Executive Director after the previous one retired. We interviewed all five staff members, twenty-one of the twenty-four board members, and 13 other key stakeholders and sponsors for this Organizational Assessment. This information was used to review its current programming, and to create a new job description for the Executive Director based on that assessment. We will be leading the recruitment effort for this position during August, with the hope that a new Executive Director will be in place in Fall.
