DANA is a strong, influential voice for the residents of downtown that many, including the City of Austin, developers, retailers and others seek out and regard.
DANAtakes action for our Members. We monitor and proactively attempt to resolve issues affecting downtown residents by serving on numerous boards, task forces and committees focused on downtown.
DANA supports downtown Austin through charitable giving. In the year 2009 alone, we donated over $18,000 to other non-profits involved with downtown living, including the Wooldridge Square Centennial, Humanities Texas, Ballet Austin, the Paramount and State Theaters, and the Urban Candidate Forum to name a few.
DANA keeps you involved by promoting downtown volunteer opportunities, community forums and social activities.
DANA celebrates our Members by throwing our popular Urban Core Happy Hours ten times a year. If you have never attended one of these you are missing out on a great monthly opportunity to mingle with the DANA Board and other members, all while partaking in food and beverages at some of the coolest bars, restaurants and retailers in Austin.
