DNC Presents FY21 Officers and Board Members

Downtown Norfolk Council is honored to present the membership-approved slate of officers and directors for the upcoming fiscal year beginning July 1, 2020. We welcome the new members of the DNC Board and express our sincere appreciation for the support from all of our board members and our Executive Committee. 

While our community has been impacted like never before due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it is important to share the accomplishments of the Downtown Norfolk Council over the past year, which can be viewed here. We had a strong foundation before the crisis, and with the support of our stakeholders and members, we know we will come back stronger than ever.
