Members Area

Your home base for membership resources, publishing, and DBPA information.

Welcome to your DBPA Membership headquarters. Everything we’re doing on behalf of our members and downtown can be found here.

Use the tabs up above, they’re your primary navigation tool!

And, since you’re just getting started, here’s a couple of ‘to do’ items to put on your list!

  1. Check out the ‘Listings’ page. If you find yours there, but don’t have access to it, send a quick email to josh@downtownminot and we’ll make sure you get connected to it. And so you know, we put a lot of information in already to create content to develop the site around.
  2. If you don’t see a ‘Listing’ for your business, hit up the ‘Listings’ tab just above to create yours. And don’t worry, we’ll help polish it up if needed.
  3. Learn about ‘Publishing’ here. A big part of the how this website was designed is about making important content about what our members doing easy to find and easy to read for the curious and quality-information-starved public. So, we’re inviting you to help and that starts with learning!
  4. Complete our 2021 Business Infomation Survey Right Here. Having some basic information about your business is a huge help when it comes to telling the downtown story!
  5. Check out the Go Downtown Gift Card and get signed up!

This is a quick set of recent downtown news — both public and member-only. You can always find the full set of infinitely scrollable news on the website’s main menu for ‘Downtown News’.
