 Dear Colleague,


Congratulations on being accredited as a 2010 National Main Street Program!


The Georgia Main Street Program has evaluated your organization's performance in 2009 and determined that you have met all ten performance standards and criteria required to be named an accredited Main Street program.


These standards of performance help us keep the Main Street movement strong and focused nationally. The ten standards of performance require a Main Street Program to:


  1. Have broad-based community support for the commercial district revitalization process, with strong support from both the public and private sectors;
  2. Develop vision and mission statements relevant to community conditions and to the local Main Street ® program’s organizational stage;
  3. Have a comprehensive Main Street ® work plan;
  4. Possess and exhibit an historic preservation ethic;
  5. Have an active board of directors and committees;
  6. Have an adequate operating budget;
  7. Have a paid professional program manager;
  8. Conduct a program of ongoing training for staff and volunteers;
  9. Report key statistics; and
  10. Have a current membership in the National Main Street Network® membership program.


Your official certificate was mailed out on July 9, 2010, along with a sample press release you can tailor to announce your program’s 2010 accreditation. For your convenience, you will find at the end of this message the text from the sample press release.


For the sake of clarity, please note and stress in your communications that this is an accreditation, not an awards program. Additionally, when referring to Main Street®, you may now use the registered trademark symbol.


For more detailed information on the accreditation program, please visit http://www.preservationnation.org/main-street/about-main-street/the-programs/national-programs.html. If you have any questions about your individual accreditation evaluation, please contact The Georgia Main Street Program directly.


Congratulations on your achievements this year and best wishes for continued success.
