BBBA is run by an Executive Committee of up to eleven voting members of volunteer business people who are elected by the BID Members each year at the Annual General Meeting. The Board is responsible for the day-to-day operations and overall financial direction of BBBA, and works with Browns Bay stakeholders to make the town centre a great place to do business, shop, live, eat and play.
Funding for BBBA to operate is via a Targeted Rate, which is paid by every commercial property located within the BID. Auckland Council collects the levy, which is then distributed to BBBA on a quarterly basis. Additional funding from other sources, such as Hibiscus and Bays Local Board grants, Four Winds Foundation and the Lion Foundation, may also be sought for events and projects.
BBBA is managed by a part-time Town Centre Manager under the guidance and instruction of the Executive Committee. The role is to implement Browns Bay’s Strategic Plan and Business Plan.
To be a vibrant, safe and community-orientated town centre that celebrates its beachside connection, whilst providing for the needs and wants of the local community, its visitors and the surrounding areas.
The Constitution contains the rules that the Browns Bay Business Association must follow whilst implementing its Strategic Plan.
