Raising a 21st century city requires broad and meaningful community collaboration. Toward this end the Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. Board of Advisors brings influential leaders from different organizations together around a common table and agenda for building a strong city center.
The Board draws membership from the executive leadership of key community organizations, plus the Chairperson from each of DGRI's fiduciary boards - the DDA, the DID, and the Monroe North TIFA - as well as each of DGRI's Alliances - Investment, Livability, and Vibrancy.
The DGRI Board of Advisors does not make financial decisions. Rather it provides a structured forum for continuous conversation and heightened collaboration that helps drive DGRI's vision and strategy, encourage mutually reinforcing activities among all participants, and deliver better results for the community.
