About PBID

What Property Owners Are Saying

The Midtown PBID has been incredibly impactful in developing public-private partnerships for clean and safe services, capital improvements and lighting. I continue to be a proud supporter of their renewal expansion.
Steve Hansen, District 4 Councilmember
As a member of the Midtown Association and its board for decades, I find the growth and progress of the organization over the last several years to be truly remarkable. I attribute this in large part to participation in the PBID. My expectations have been raised as a result and I look forward to even more success moving forward.

Board

Board Chair Mike Wiley (General Manager, Regional Transit) has led the organization since late 2013, preceded by Keri Thomas (Community and Government Relations Director, Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region). Midtown Association is governed by a policy board of 25 comprised primarily of property owners. Under the board’s leadership, Midtown Association has grown from a grassroots organization established in 1985 to the “go-to” organization for business leadership and policy for Midtown Sacramento. The board is self-electing with open nominations each fall.

 

Staff

Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director, has led the Midtown Association for two years. Under her leadership, policy positions taken on behalf of Midtown have been successful, the Farmers Market has grown to be one of the best in the region, clean and safe efforts have expanded, and the organization has received clean audits for prudent fiscal management. Prior to Midtown Association, Michaels was the CEO of the Downtown Stockton Alliance and has 15 years’ experience with PBID/Business Association leadership. She holds a Master’s in Public Policy (USC), a BS in Hospitality and Tourism (SDSU), a Certificate in Fundraising Management (IU) and a Certificate in Hospitality Law.

The staff team includes Kelly Hoskins, Admin & (Clean & Safe) Program Manager; Lauren Machi, Communications Coordinator; Luis and Kadeem, two full time Safety Ambassadors; and Chris, George, and Jose, Maintenance Team Members. Midtown Association also contracts for external bookkeeping, auditing, public relations, website development, graphic design, homeless navigation, police services, and event production. Front line staffing will expand in ratio to new service area.
