2023 Dues and Membership Benefits Changes



Good Afternoon all, 
I wanted to update you all on the new membership changes that will take effect beginning January 2023. The DDA board has approved dues increases, and created new tiers of membership (below):

  • Associate (Individual/Family) $75
  • Business (With Volunteering) $125
  • Business (No Volunteering) $225
  • Business (Outside Downtown, with volunteering) $110
  • Business (Outside Downtown, no volunteering) $210
  • Silver Sponsor $500
  • Gold Sponsor $750
  • Platinum Sponsor $1,000
  • Nonprofit Organization $100
As you can see, there is a tier for volunteering versus not volunteering. In addition to these increases, the Board has voted to implement a volunteering requirement for all its members. This requirement is that all DDA members will provide 20 hours a year to the organization. This can be completed by any employee of a business, and can be done by the following: 

  • Participating on a DDA Committee (about 1.5 hours a month)
  • Participating on the DDA board (about 1.5-2 hours a month)
  • Volunteering at a DDA event (varies)
  • Assisting the board with recruitment of new members (varies)
We do not want this to be a cumbersome requirement, and as the DDA evolves and improves on its benefits and events in the next year, we need help from all our members to help make these events happen. However, if your business cannot volunteer your time, you are able to pay the "non-volunteer premium" of $100, which will help us supplement the lost volunteer hours. In addition to these increases, there is now a clear list of member benefits for each of these new tiers that businesses will find beneficial. You can find these tiers below:

Associate Member - $75

  • Voting Member
  • Ability to Participate on committees
Business Member - $125 / $110 / $210 / $225

All of the above, and:
