Become A Member

CDAD’s membership operates on a calendar year basis–so you want to join early in the year to take full advantage of member benefits for that calendar year.

“For 25 years, CDAD has been the catalyst of positive change, architects of equity, and champions of a thriving Detroit. It is through our collective voice, shared vision, and unwavering dedication that we are shaping a brighter future for every resident, every neighborhood, and every generation. Join us on this transformative journey as we build a stronger, more inclusive Detroit together.”

Antoine Jackson

Executive Director, MACC Development and CDAD Board Chair
