Ballard Alliance Committees

The Ballard Alliance has four core committees that serve in an advisory capacity to the organization – Marketing and Membership, Programs, Public Policy and SeafoodFest.  Each Member of the Ballard Alliance Board of Directors generally serve on no less than two committees.  Ballard Alliance members are also encouraged to serve on a committee. Committee members must commit to consistent active participation, and support the goals of the committee and the organization.

Marketing and Membership

Co-Chair: Lanne Stauffer, Market Street Shoes

Co-Chair: Eli Fisher, Athlete Network

This committee advises the organization on matters related to marketing and membership, including the development of marketing tools, promotional campaigns and events, member benefits and outreach, and membership recruitment.

Programs

Chair: Candace Cothran, People’s Bank

The Programs Committee develops and drives the programs agenda for the year. Typical programs include regular lunch meetings, speaker opportunities, After Hours events and other special events (e.g. Mariners Games, golf tournament etc.).

Public Policy

Chair: Charles Costanzo, American Waterways Operators

The Public Policy Committee advises on issues that are critical to the needs of Ballard area businesses and residents. Because of the significant breadth of issue areas, the committee is divides into two active subcommittees:

  • Clean/Healthy/Safe Subcommittee – Advises on policies and programs related to homelessness, street cleaning, mental health outreach, the Seattle Police Department and other identified issue areas.
  • Economic Development Subcommittee – Advises on policies and programs related to economic development, business retention and recruitment, urban design, transportation, tax policy and other relevant legislative issues.

SeafoodFest

Chair: Mike Stewart, Ballard Alliance

Committee participants are closely involved with the planning and implementation of the annual Ballard SeafoodFest. This committee requires a significant time commitment, particularly the weeks leading up to – and the weekend of – this summer event.
