The ADDC is always in need of volunteers to serve on our committees (see below), to help plan downtown events, work on public beautification of Downtown, or assist with administrative support.
The standing committees of Design, Economic Vitality, Organization, and Promotion each meet monthly to carry out a Plan of Work that is approved by the ADDC Board each fiscal year (July-June).
