Like a Chamber of Commerce but with a Neighborhood Twist

The Downtown Small Business Collaborative is a group of small businesses (and large businesses that serve and/or work alongside them) working together to foster a strong small business community in our neighborhood.

Below are some of the reasons for your small or large business to join DNA:

  • Promotion of upcoming events
  • Connections with downtown’s elected officials, police officers, and other public officials
  • Regular networking and learning opportunities
  • Restaurants/bars receive preference for the DNA monthly happy hours (average attendance of 75)
  • Residents and other businesses enjoy patronizing businesses they know
  • Networking opportunities at DNA functions
  • Increased credibility as a community partner
  • Volunteer opportunities in downtown
  • Sponsorship opportunities to promote your business
  • Ribbon cuttings/grand opening ceremonies with invited dignitaries, professional photographer, and media invites (for an extra fee)
  • Business referrals
  • Membership window cling
  • Listing in the yearly Downtown Community Directory (mailed to each residential unit in downtown, handed out by real estate professionals,  placed in participating businesses, and digital version on DNA website)
  • Business listing on the DNA website
  • Small Businesses receive a vote in DNA matters (board elections, policy stances, etc.)
