About the IDA Community

The IDA community is comprised of a diverse set of practitioners who transform cities into healthy and vibrant urban places. These practitioners are involved in all segments of downtown management (planning, leadership, communications and marketing, business support) and in all types of organizations (non-profit, government, and business). In addition to members attending the a variety of international events and workshops, the IDA community remains active throughout the year by virtually sharing best practices, knowledge, and ideas.

From our domestic members, to our global networks, to our strategic partners, every IDA member plays an active role in creating a robust and diverse community of practitioners.
