BBBA is run by an executive committee (up to 10 members) of volunteer business people who are elected by the BID members at the Annual General Meeting. The Executive Committee appoints a Chairperson and Treasurer.
The Executive Committee represents Browns Bay businesses and commercial building owners. It is responsible for the day-to-day operation and overall financial direction of BBBA, and works with all Browns Bay stakeholders to make the town centre a great place to do business, shop, live, eat and play.
Executive Committee meetings are held monthly with the exception of January, and all BID members are welcome to attend. Please contact the Town Centre Manager (contact details below) for meeting information. Membership of BBBA is open to owners and tenants of commercial properties within the Business Association’s BID defined area (see map below).
Funding for BBBA to operate is via a target levy paid by each commercial property located within the boundary of the BID (pink area on the map below). 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 community-focused projects.
BBBA is managed by a part-time Town Centre Manager under guidance and instruction from the Executive Committee. Their role is to implement Browns Bay’s Strategic Business Plan.
