Membership Committee

The Membership Committee works to keep members informed about current events and projects impacting downtown Hilo.

The Hilo DIA is funded by member dues, special events, and grants. We solicit membership and community participation to strengthen the DIA organization and support our work in the downtown community. We draw strength from our members, and in turn are able to serve our community. Please join us!
