Leadership Team

CityBuild Love AffairCityBuild is guided by a Leadership Team of Partnership members who have committed to a term of two years. The team serves as the brain trust for the program and focuses on ways to engage the CityBuild community.


This sub-committee is made up of over 150 CityBuilders who want to get more involved. They support the CityBuild Leadership Team, respond to calls to action and get access to special opportunities throughout the year.  This group serves as a segue into deeper involvement with the Partnership and CityBuild. The Activators convene monthly for special coffee meet-ups or happy hours. Activators are sponsored by Capital One. Become an Activator!
