Why a membership?

Centro members are the exponential force behind Centro 
San Antonio’s service to downtown. Membership and sponsorships offer you the opportunity to partner with Centro in making downtown more ​beautiful, playful, welcoming, and prosperous in the spirit of San Antonio.  The following defines both Membership and Sponsorship opportunities.  Membership is how an individual or organization shows general support for being part of advancing Centro’s role as the place-makers of downtown.  We work hard every day to help cultivate a complete, well-functioning ecosystem of neighborhoods and thriving enterprise that are situated in the civic and cultural epicenters of our beautiful, historic city.  By doing this, we catalyze and reinforce downtown as the True Center of San Antonio.

Annual Membership Levels

In addition to the benefits of the corporate level membership, chair’s council level members can join individually or appoint the CEO, President or equivalent from their organization. The council is a small group of thoughtful, passionate influencers from around the city who come together to share their insights and perspective on what’s happening downtown, as well as in San Antonio, the region and the country to help guide Centro’s strategy and priorities. There are no fiduciary responsibilities. Just attend two lunch meetings per year that will be no more than 2 hours. They will be high quality, in amazing venues and will allow for robust dialogue amongst the guests.
