JOB OBJECTIVE: This position is a key member of the Texas Main Street Program (TMSP), a downtown revitalization effort with a more than 40-year track record of assisting Texas communities. Under the direction of the state coordinator, the assistant state coordinator will provide a variety of complex consultative services and technical assistance to the network of 90 historic downtowns that participate in the state program. Primary responsibilities involve working with local Main Street stakeholders (managers, board members, city staff, partners) to build sustainable Main Street programs under the preservation-based foundation of Main Street America’s revitalization strategy, the Main Street Approach™. To this end, the assistant state coordinator must establish relationships with network communities; organize training for local programs, providing presentations when appropriate; handle logistics and planning duties related to TMSP events, projects, and administrative tasks; and work with state coordinator to organize and provide accreditation visits to communities.

The assistant state coordinator may work directly with local programs and TMSP staff members on projects to develop leadership and capacity; consider downtown economic vitality initiatives; craft marketing campaigns for downtowns; and reinforce the understanding and use of historic preservation standards. Agency-focused goals include increasing the visibility and value of the TMSP within the network of local Main Street programs and increasing participation of stakeholders in agency led trainings and events. This position works with other members of the program team, including organizational, architectural, economic development, and city planning professionals, and may lead, guide, and coordinate the work of team members.

The assistant state coordinator works under limited supervision, with moderate latitude for the use of initiative and independent judgment. Occasional travel required, averaging four nights per month with some ability to control the travel schedule.
