Roy Koegen - 2021 Board Chair

Kutak Rock

I am honored to be your 2021 Chair and look forward to a very productive and constructive 2021. In 2021 the DSP is focused on renewing the BID contract with the City of Spokane, addressing public safety and homelessness, implementing organizational changes to advance diversity, equity and inclusiveness, and the formation of a Tax Increment Financing district to support the financing of both a downtown parking garage as part of a mixed-use development and downtown affordable housing.

How to Join the Board

The Downtown Spokane Partnership (DSP) Board of Directors governs the DSP. The Board consists of up to 23 directors who are appointed by the DSP Board itself to direct the policies and operations of the organization. The Board’s primary role is to assure that the DSP resources are directed in ways that protect and advance the Downtown interests and its role in the region. Members of the DSP Board of Directors provide a variety of skills and expertise, community connections, occupations, ages and backgrounds. Members are nominated every November with the final slate to be approved by membership at the DSP Annual Meeting each February. Board Members are eligible to serve for three consecutive two-year terms, with the exception of annual appointments. Apply
