Wolverton Elected President of State Organization

Greensboro, NC—August 4, 2011—The North Carolina Downtown Development Association has elected Ed Wolverton to serve as the President of the organization. Wolverton lives in Greensboro and serves as the President and CEO of Downtown Greensboro Incorporated.

The North Carolina Downtown Development Association (NCDDA) is a state-wide, membership organization made up of towns, downtown development organizations, chambers of commerce, and private professionals. The primary purpose of the non-profit is to connect a state-wide network of people and organizations involved and interested in downtown revitalization. NCDDA functions as a center for information, a resource for technical training and educational forums, a clearinghouse of ideas, and an advocate for public policy that supports downtown revitalization.

“I am excited and humbled to be elected by my colleagues and peers as the Chairman of this important organization,” said Wolverton. “While honored on a personal level, I think the selection is also a validation of the community’s successful efforts in revitalizing the center city,” he added.

NCDDA has a number of initiatives planned for the upcoming year. In August, the large cities task force that includes professionals from Charlotte, Winston Salem, Raleigh and other communities will gather in Greensboro for session on board development, using social media and emerging trends. The organization will provide on-site consultant services to the Village of Pinehurst through a Technical Advisory Team in August. A one-half day session focusing on renovating facades is slated for Goldsboro in September. NCDDA also agreed to serve as a sponsor for the North Carolina Main Street conference in January.

“The organization has an aggressive work program that focuses on improving Downtown areas across the State,” said Wolverton. “I look forward to help achieve this goal,” he said.
