A SELF-GOVERNING STRUCTURE

The Edmonds Downtown Alliance is governed by a member advisory board made up of a balanced group of member businesses; big and small, retail and service.

The members advisory board, with input from members, is responsible for designing, creating, and implementing a work plan and budget each fall.

Advisory Board meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 8am via Zoom. Please join us.

Elections for the Advisory Board are held each April during our annual meeting.

PARTNERS

The members advisory board may include some ratepayers who are also affiliated with the Downtown Edmonds Merchants Association and the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce. While these organizations are separate, the overlap of membership will ensure continuity and coordination of downtown enhancement efforts.
