I am happy to report that our Accreditation as a Main Street Program has been complete. Hartwell is again recognized as a Classic Main Street Community for 2019 at both the state and national levels. To achieve this, there are fourteen (14) categories that are audited. We must provide a map of our district, have an organizational chart, develop a mission/vision statement, have an annual work plan, provide all board meeting agendas and minutes, have a signed Memorandum of Understanding, provide a board roster, have bylaws, provide our annual budget, have a main street manager job description, main street staff job descriptions (we have volunteers), have a training log, have a national main street accreditation, and provide monthly community activity reports. This process will be changing to an oral interview and presentation for 2020 reaccreditation and I hope to receive as much if not more support for that process as I have for the 2019 process. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and participated in Main Street events. I am still the new guy and have a lot to learn, so it means a lot to me to have a team of folks willing to give their time and talent to our success.
