2017 DNA Membership – Registration Now Open!

The Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA)
asks you to support the organization that supports downtown Elgin!

The Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) of Elgin, IL is a non-profit volunteer-driven organization that represents the interests of Elgin’s Central Business District. The Association’s purpose is to foster a center of activity and ensure economic stability for the heart of Elgin through organization, design, promotion and economic revitalization, and we can do this through your support.

  • Some member benefits include:
    *Priority listing on the DNA’s “Top 10” and “Weekend Reminder”
    *Official downtown Elgin Ribbon Cuttings, Open Houses and Anniversary Celebrations
    *Marketing of available downtown Elgin properties
    *Member assistance and promotions for member events and happenings
    *Complimentary use of DNA resources such as folding tables, chairs, pop-up tents and signs
  • This past year, we have accomplished a lot, and here is just a sampling:
    *Since the DNA’s Design Committee achieved recognition for Downtown Elgin on the National Register for Historic Places last year, we had created the historical walking tour of downtown Elgin. We worked with community partners such as the Elgin History MuseumGail Borden Public Library and individual community volunteers to see this through.
    *We hosted the  “Downtown Elgin Real Estate Tour”, which attracted new businesses, realtors and developers to Elgin’s central business district. 
    *We also brought in thousands of visitors with our special events, such as the Downtown Elgin Pub Crawl, Window Wonderland, Small Business Saturday and much more.
    *The DNA Board and Staff has established relationships with both Elgin Academy and Judson University to create opportunities for our downtown stakeholders that were previously not available.

The above is only a slice of what we have accomplished, but we cannot carry out our mission without the generous support of our Members. Thank you, in advance, for supporting your Downtown via the DNA.

Memberships start at $30.
