Board of Directors

The DBA Board of Directors has the final responsibility for the success of the Downtown Bloomington Association. It is responsible for all of the finances of the organization and establishes program policy. The board is responsible for maximizing volunteer involvement in downtown revitalization efforts. Collectively, the board makes decisions about the program’s direction and civic stance. It oversees the work of the executive director and staff; has primary responsibility for raising money for DBA programs, and supports the work of DBA committees by volunteering time and expertise to their efforts. The board of directors is also responsible for fulfilling the legal and financial requirements in the conduct of its business affairs as a non-profit organization. The board may delegate some of its duties to one of the four committees.
