The Downtown Business Club is a quarterly meeting that allows local downtown business owners to connect with each other and hear new ideas about growing their businesses. The Downtown Improvement District coordinates the schedule and facilitates the meetings. The meeting allows professionals in the community to form bonds while learning new information from guest speakers each month. Interested in sponsoring the DBC?
