What is an Organizational Chart

The organization chart is a diagram showing graphically the relation of one official to another, or others, of a company. It is also used to show the relation of one department to another or one function of an organization to another. This chart is valuable in that it enables one to visualize a complete organization, by means of the picture it presents.

A Main Street Programs organizational chart typically illustrates relations between people within the Main Street organization in relation to the city as well as the Board of Directors. Such relations might include managers sub-workers, directors to managing directors, officers of various departments or committees, and so forth. When an organization chart grows too large it can be split into smaller charts for separate departments within the organization. Below is an example of an Organizational Chart that can be modeled to fit your community.
