Most of our efforts this week went into four main projects:
Updating our Bylaws was really important because we made changes to allow for more specific expertise in on the DBBA board. By changing the bylaws to allow for community members outside of the EID to serve on our board, we can now participate in board recruitment for specific needs that our organization has.
Creating Downtown Bend as THE Central Oregon holiday experience is one of our goals, so we are getting bids from professional decorating companies and brainstorming ways to fund a large-scale project.
Selling directory kiosks ads is important because not only does it help direct traffic into our local businesses, but it also allows us to create the revenue to continue to invest in Downtown Bend's economic vitality.
.. and (of course!) we continued all of daily services with excellence and pride!
The DBBA is a small non-profit dedicated to increasing the vitality of Downtown Bend.
