Tuesday June 20, 2017
Kenyattah Robinson, MVT CID President and CEO, was selected by the International Downtown Association (IDA) for its 2017 Emerging Leaders Fellowship Program. Robinson, along with three other Washington, DC-area urban district management leaders — Rachel Rose Hartman of the DowntownDC BID, John Wiebenson of the Georgetown BID and Rick Ammirato of the Bethesda Urban Partnership — comprised this year’s cohort of 28 of the industry’s brightest professionals representing four countries and 17 provinces and states. The Emerging Leaders Fellowship was a week-long experiential program that took place June 11-16 in New York City and brought together IDA professionals from within the urban district management industry. The fellows developed essential leadership and place management skills, and gained practical tools in the areas of place-based economic development, the live-work-play experience, and public-private partnerships.
