Downtown Regional Council

The Downtown Regional Council plans the Regional Roundtables (discussions on CRE, community, or business issues within the region) and Power Hours as well as other programs or events for the region.      

The council consists of a Principal Member Chair, Associate Member Co-Chair, and Principal Member Co-Chair. The council may also include members-at-large or additional co-chairs depending on the council’s needs.

The region covers the Downtown core, including the financial district, the historic district, the fashion district, and the arts district.

Staff Liaison: Director of Government and Public Affairs 


  • The chairs (or co-chair if a chair is absent) facilitate Regional Roundtable discussions and emcee the regionally hosted virtual Power Hours. The chair may be asked to step in if a Power Hour speaker falls through to lead a facilitated peer-to-peer conversation.  
  • Participate and assist the staff liaison in planning Power Hour speakers and in setting the agenda for the Regional Roundtable meetings. This may include securing speakers and securing locations to host events.  
  • Engage in member outreach to increase regional member engagement and attendance at the regionally hosted events.

Meeting Schedule

Minimum of one 30-minute planning meeting for each of the four regional events. Additional calls may be required or requested based on planning needs for a particular event.

Council members are expected to attend and participate in the region’s two Regional Roundtables and two Power Hours.

Leaders may also be invited to Political Action Committee candidate interviews if it is with a political candidate from the region.
