DECI 2014 Partnership Program

Posted March 11th, 2014

DECI 2014 PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

 

 

Downtown “Partners” are businesses and organizations that go above and beyond a simple sponsorship, and extend their support to multiple programs and services that DECI offers. In return for this increased level of support, DECI partners receive various recognitions, discounts, and advertising opportunities. By sponsoring multiple events at one time, DECI has more flexibility and funds to plan the programs and services that support our downtown businesses and community members.
