DVAA COMMITTEES

At DVAA, we think that our members should take precedence in shaping our community. 
That's why committees are comprised of any and all DVAA members that would like to get more involved in a specific aspect of the organization and dedicate some time to making our community stronger -- and our mission more concretely felt.  The ideas generated at committee meetings are then brought to our Board of Directors for the sake of ensuring that things can happen in a fiscally responsible, logistically feasible manner. 

If you would like to contribute your ideas and voice to one of the committees below, email us at info@davinciartalliance.org!


Building Committee
This committee's goal is to make improvements to DVAA's building in alignment with DVAA Board's strategic plan for the use of the space into the future. The Building Committee scopes out maintenance, repair, and improvement projects that need to be done to the DVAA building, prioritizes these projects, creates budgets for them - to be approved by the DVAA Board, gets estimates for any contracted work (and then manages outside contractors), and provides ongoing volunteer work hours to maintain the building as DVAA's primary/owned asset.
