Downtown Akron Partnership Emerging Leaders

The Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) Emerging Leaders was established in 2010 to assist in the efforts of retaining young professionals and enhancing DAP's mission of  building and promoting a vibrant, valuable downtown.

The Emerging Leaders includes members 35 years of age and younger from a variety of businesses and organizations. The Emerging Leaders aim to increase the number of people investing socially and economically in downtown, making downtown a more appealing place to live, work and play all year round.
