Who We Are

"A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams."

The Downtown Business Association is a collection of businesses, organizations, and individuals with a common goal of promoting commerce, entertainment, and living in Downtown Tallahassee. Through engagement with the community and local government, the DBA is constantly working to advance our member's interests, because we believe that when Downtown succeeds we all succeed.

Board of Directors

The Downtown Business Association is governed and directed by the men and women that serve on our board. The board members are volunteer representatives from many of the downtown businesses. These individuals are committed to the promotion of the DBA and Downtown Tallahassee in general.
