Allison Hallum, GM of Eiko’s, Eiko’s Oxbow and Napa Noodles, three restaurants she co-owns with her family, has been elected president of the Downtown Napa Association (DNA) board of directors for the 2021-2022 term. She first joined the board in 2016, and most recently served as vice president.
“COVID has affected everybody everywhere, and downtown business owners feel it as much as anyone,” said Hallum. “The DNA board exists to support our local businesses and continue to drive traffic into downtown. That’s never been so important or so challenging.”
Connie Anderson, owner/publisher of the Napa Valley Marketplace magazine, is vice-president, and Sara Brooks, GM of the Napa River Inn and the Hatt Building, is treasurer/secretary. Bill LaLiberte, a downtown property manager, is the immediate past president. He and the officers serve as the executive committee.
New members to the board, also serving for the 2021-2022 term, are Toni Chiapetta, owner of Sweetie Pies Bakery; Indra Fortney, owner of Boho Lifestyles; Kimberly McMaster, owner of Blue Water Day Spa, Garret Murphy, owner of Vintners Collective and Peter Triolo, director of food and beverage at Archer Hotel.
The Napa Downtown Association has 300 members. It was established in 1971.
