New DNA Managing Director

An Announcement from DNA Board President, Karin Jones

DNA Members, Partners and Friends:

The Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Jason Pawlowski has accepted promotion to the position of Managing Director of the DNA. With his knowledge and experience in all we do at the DNA, we are very excited and looking forward to his innovative new perspective in this new position. We are confident that we will be moving forward as a newly restructured and stronger organization with Jason as the Managing Director.

As DNA Promotions Coordinator for the last two years, Jason has overseen many of the association’s special events, marketing and promotions initiatives. He has helped stimulate additional stakeholder engagement by expanding the organization’s social media footprint and markedly increasing DNA’s Downtown Neighborhood News Top 10 weekly eblast subscriber list thru a variety of engaging promotions, including the Illinois Main Street Award winning Downtown Madness. Jason has also been instrumental in developing relationships with the Elgin non-profit community, special event sponsors, downtown Elgin businesses, DNA Partners, and new DNA members.

The DNA Board congratulates Jason Pawlowski on his promotion to Managing Director and looks forward to continued success and growth of the Downtown Neighborhood Association under his leadership.

I turn once again to one of my favorites in describing Jason’s dedication to DNA:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – Dr. Seuss.

And I can assure you, we would be hard pressed to find someone that cares more about the DNA than Jason! Thank you for rising to the occasion Jason.
