The City of Danville, acting through its City Manager and other City employees reporting to the City Manager, are actively engaged in economic development activities intended to promote economic development in the City. The City Manager and other City employees engaged in economic development activities, working in conjunction with the City Council of the City, desire the contributions of talented and capable people from the Danville Region, who can contribute to the City's economic development efforts.

As a result, the City desires that this council, acting through its Board members, provides advice and services to the City to cooperatively promote the economic well-being, growth, and development of the City. Therefore, it is anticipated that the Board of Directors of this council shall be a working board, providing assistance as requested, and advice when appropriate, to the City. The Board will work together with the City Council, the City Manager, and other City officials and employees in cooperatively promoting economic health and development of the City.
