Regional Roundtables & Webinars

TDA's educational events are designed to provide our members educational and networking opportunities within their regions. Roundtables are half to full day events and include presentations, discussions, networking, and lunch.  These meetings are a great way to showcase your downtown and share initiatives and strategies that have been useful in your community.

Regional Roundtables and webinars are open to both members and non-members of TDA.
