The CMCBD is run by Central Market Community Benefit Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association led by a staff and Board of Directors, all of whom are property owners or other Central Market community stakeholders.

The CMCBD’s Board of Directors is made up of 11 stakeholders elected to two-year terms. The Board includes six property owners, two community-based organizations representing the interests of residents in the District, and three non-property-owning merchants from the district.
