Experience Tacoma (CDA) Membership

Become a member and support Tacoma through Neighborhood Business Districts

Planning and Prioritization

Each spring the Experience Tacoma (CDA) reviews its priorities and initiatives and presents those to the general board, the City of Tacoma’s Community & Economic Development Department, the City Council and other agencies which provide support to the organization. From these initiatives are formed the sub-committees made up of volunteers who advance the purpose of the priorities and develop action plans for the year.

Advocacy and Government Relations

Parking committee, tax incentives, skills training, and economic restructuring are all examples of initiatives the Cross District Association is involved in.

Purposeful Networking

Each month the Experience Tacoma (CDA) general board meets to learn more about services the City provides, major projects in process that will support small business, and to network with other business owners who have similar aspirations. Sub-committee chairs report progress toward goals and important initiatives to be voted on at these meetings. For more information about the CDA monthly meetings and other events, browse through district schedule at right. 
In addition to the monthly meetings and special social events, periodically the City co-hosts purposeful networking events.

Pass-through Fund Administration for Tax Deductible Donations & Community Building Projects

The board of Tacoma Neighborhoods Together, the 501c3 arm of the CDA, supports the districts by giving them a funding pass through option which allows for tax deductible donations to be raised. These funds support efforts in the districts to develop public art, beautification and special events that build and sustain the community in and near the neighborhood business districts.
