History

Founded in 1997, the Tuskegee-Macon County Community Development Corporation (TuskMac CDC) was established with collaboration as a core principle. The primary goal then and now is to link Tuskegee University with the greater Tuskegee-Macon County community to spearhead and support community and business projects that benefit neighborhoods, homeowners, senior citizens and physically challenged individuals while also nurturing aspiring entrepreneurs, small and emerging companies, retail and industrial sectors and tourism in Tuskegee and Macon County.

In 1998, TuskMac CDC received initial funding, which included a grant from the federal government supplemented by additional funding from other supporters. That same year, the TuskMac CDC established internal administrative protocols, practices and procedures.

Board working

The TuskMac CDC is now a highly functioning organization led by a dedicated board of directors that sets the policy, determines the strategic vision, manages the assets, hires the executive director and evaluates the executive director’s performance and productivity. The executive director manages the staff, maintains the facility, implements programs and oversees the delivery of services.

The TuskMac CDC tech center is available to anyone who wants to conduct research, fill out online job applications or do other work involving computers and technology. Additional resources include state-of-the-art copying equipment with nominal fees for faxing, scanning and copy services. The TuskMac CDC boardroom, which can accommodate computer-aided presentations, can be rented for meetings, seminars and workshops. The suites in the office building are occupied by a mixture of tenants including companies specializing in real estate, tourism, surveying, accounting, foundation work and economic development.
