NoMa Business Improvement District (BID) President Liz Price has announced that she will be stepping down from her post at the helm of the BID later this summer. Ms. Price will be relocating to Frankfurt, Germany, for a few years with her children and husband, a German national, in September. The NoMa BID Board of Directors has begun an immediate search for a chief executive officer to replace her.

“It will be very tough to fill Liz’s shoes,” said NoMa BID Board Chair Bruce Baschuk, Chairman of The J Street Companies. “Since she assumed her responsibilities in 2007, Liz has done an incredible job of building the organization and shaping the character and image of the neighborhood itself.  NoMa is the fastest growing neighborhood in the city and the BID is recognized citywide as an effective, creative and collaborative organization – and Liz has been the driving force behind this success. We are sad to see her go, but wish her all the best in her next adventure.”

“The decision to leave is bittersweet,” said Price.  “I am grateful for the tremendous opportunity I had to lead the BID during this exciting time in NoMa’s evolution.  I have never had a job that was more rewarding, challenging, impactful or fun.  I am so proud of what we accomplished over the last four years, especially the wonderful and talented team we have assembled who will continue to propel the neighborhood to new heights.”

The Board hopes to fill the President position as soon as possible.  Those interested in applying for the position should contact Louise Stoner Crawford at [email protected] or (202) 441-8913.  View a full job description on the NoMa BID web site.

Since Ms. Price helped launch the NoMa BID in May 2007, the BID has grown to six full-time staffers and seven ambassadors, plus a Clean Team of 15 people contracted through Gospel Rescue Ministries.

Notable BID accomplishments during Price’s tenure include:
