The initial management team consists of the board of directors and officers of CMBA working closely with the executive director. In addition, a professional lobbyist is employed to keep us appraised of legislative activities and to help us affect desired outcomes. Ultimately the work will be divided among committees and the executive director may need to add staff to the Association management team.
The following table summarizes our personnel expenditures (executive director and lobbyist) for the first three years, with compensation increasing from about $43K the first year to about $59K in the third. We believe this plan is a good compromise between fairness and expedience, and meets the commitment of our mission statement. The detailed monthly personnel plan for the first year is included in the appendix.
