Board of Directors

The DVBIA is a non-profit society governed by a volunteer board of directors who equally represent both property and business owners from within our 90-block area. Issues are reviewed and programs are developed by volunteer committees that represent a broad range of members and community stakeholders. DVBIA staff take care of day-to-day management of the organization and are responsible for implementing programs as directed by the board of directors.
