The Batavia Business Improvement District (BBID) is seeking qualified applications for the position of Executive Director.
We would like to thank our former Director, Beth Kemp, for her service to the district and wish her the best in her professional endeavors. Kemp represented our BBID with integrity, strong leadership and endless energy. Her presence will be missed.
