Our Board & Staff

Above: Board & Staff in a Planning Retreat

For much of its existence, PBCIP was an all-volunteer organization run by residents of the community. Although professional staff was brought on in 1999 as the scope and complexity of PBCIP’s work grew, the board of trustees remains neighborhood-based. Most members reside in Parkside and neighborhood businesses and organizations are represented as well.
