A partnership with a North American group is bringing hundreds of downtown management organizations under Ottawa-based Member365’s umbrella.
The International Downtown Association works with “downtown champions” – business associations and local government entities like Ottawa’s business improvement areas (BIA) – across the continent, providing them with resources and industry events.
The IDA announced a partnership with Member365 to provide the latter’s membership management software to its network of organizations, five of which are based in Ottawa, according to the IDA’s interactive map.
While the value of the partnership was not disclosed, the downtown management industry features 100,000 employees with wages totalling more than $3 billion, according to a release from both companies.
“Our members are constantly looking for scalable database solutions to drive success. Member365 will provide IDA members with a more efficient means of increasing community engagement, enhancing communication and promoting collaboration within their organization,” said IDA president and CEO David Downey in a statement.
