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 help on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 8 am at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 4th Ave North, Room 225. Please join us.

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

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