If you live in Downtown Austin, or have an interest in its growth, then you should consider joining DANA. The Downtown Austin Neighborhood Assocition recently transitioned its leadership team. Outgoing President Marshall Jones remains on the board, while Jamie LaGarde takes his new role as President. Marshall has been President of DANA for the past two years. This is a tireless and, often, thankless job. Of course, these positions are volunteer without pay. Marshall always had the ability to approach political challenges with grace and class. I can comforatbly speak for all DANA members when I thank him for his commitment to making DANA the knowledgeable, influential, and social organization it is today. With over 1,000 members and growing, Marshall and the presidents that preceded him can be proud of what they’ve created.
Leaving the board is Jim Furrow and Michael McGill, though each will remain active DANA members, and you can expect they will continue to be vocal stakeholders in the Downtown community.
