Crispus Attucks Development Corporation (CADC) is an all-volunteer organization which owns and manages Crispus Attucks Park. CADC is governed by a Board of Directors. Board members serve three-year terms, and officers serve one-year terms. The board meets in-person a minimum of four times each year, and sometimes more frequently if necessary. Board meetings are open to all neighborhood residents and are typically announced by email to the park mailing list, the Bloomingdale listserv, and on this website.
Board members take seriously their responsibility as the stewards one of Bloomingdale’s few open green spaces. At its most active, CADC has been a second (and unpaid) full-time job for some board members and officers, who have made extraordinary achievements on behalf of the community.
Not all the work is done by the board, however. CADC relies heavily on volunteers from throughout the neighborhood for nearly all of its projects and activities. CADC is always looking for new volunteers, many of whom later become new board members. Please contact us if you think you might be interested in getting involved.
The structure and procedures of CADC, as with any nonprofit, are governed by our bylaws. View the CADC bylaws here.
