DMI Inclusiveness Initiative
The DMI Executive Committee and Board of Directors have approved a proposal to appoint an Ad Hoc Committee to investigate, consider, and recommend: (1) a process by which DMI will enhance the inclusiveness of our membership and leadership so that our organization and its leadership reflect the full spectrum of cultural richness and viewpoints within our downtown community; (2) resources required to implement the recommended process; and (3) a timeline for implementation. The Ad Hoc Committee will include betweeen 7 and 11 people appointed by the Executive Committee and approved by the Board. It will begin its work upon appointment in June 2015, and it will submit its recommendations to the DMI Executive Committee and Board no later than September 4, 2015.
