Join the Association

WHY JOIN The Dimond Business & Professional Association?

There is power in numbers!

When merchants organize our voice is louder! By maintaining strong and positive relationship with the DIA and our representatives in the city and the police force we can and we can make sure that our neighborhood is safer, cleaner and more beautiful.

Here are some of the benefits of joining the association:

DB & PA recently hosted a meet and greet with council woman Annie Washington, Deputy chief of Oakland police and more. We work tightly to make sure that the city and the police department are aware of our concerns. This year our focus is to cooperate with DIA on ways to increase safety in our neighborhood, as well as continuing our support to projects that increase the visibility and aesthetics of the business district.
