get involved

we'd appreciate your personal involvement

we are an all volunteer membership organization. nothing happens with out members volunteering to participate or take the lead in making things happen!

The DNA needs the energy of volunteers to keep our neighborhood association running smoothly. The work of DNA is conducted mostly within committees, with each committee chair reporting to the board monthly.  Committees, are a great way to get involved just the way you want. We welcome all DNA members to join or participate in any committee that interests you, in any amount of time you have to give: you may attend committee meetings and participate in planning, or take part in specific tasks throughout the year.  Each committee meets at least 3-4 times a year (more often when planning specific events). Committees are a casual way to get things done and have fun!

No contribution of time is too small! ANY amount of time you give will be appreciated, and will benefit DNA and the downtown Des Moines community – two hours, two days, or two weeks – every little bit helps!  We believe everyone has something to offer in our ongoing effort to improve life in Downtown Des Moines.  Volunteering with the Downtown Neighborhood Association is also a great way to get to know your neighbors and contribute to your downtown neighborhood!
