The Alliance brings together people with different knowledge, perspectives, and backgrounds to solve problems, identity opportunities, and support the day-to-day work of improving Grand Rapids' central city.
Appointed by the DGRI Board of Advisors, members typically have personal interest and/or professional expertise in special events, tourism, parks, arts and culture.
The Alliance meets regularly and provides the DGRI management staff with critical input that drives organizational budgets, programs, events, projects, incentives, and services.
