The Poole BID Directors have been meeting regularly for a couple of months now and below you will find an updated list of who they are and who they represent.
There are also a couple of vacancies on the Board that need filling, if you are interested in becoming a Director and shaping the future of Poole Town Centre then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01202 649433. Alternatively all of our Directors are more than happy to pop in and see you at any time if you contact them
The Board currently meet every 2 weeks on Monday’s and the minutes are posted on the website and can be found by clicking here. It is a big commitment that they all volunteer for but it is also imperative for the Board to meet regularly at this stage while the BID gets up and running, once a BID manager is in post it is envisaged that meetings will be less frequent although still regular.
As a reminder, the Board is to be made up of a maximum 16 Directors from within BID levy paying businesses. Each geographical area can have one representative and each sector can have 2 representatives. These sectors being multiple retail, independent retail, hospitality (one licensed, one non licensed), professional services and the Borough of Poole. In order to ensure a fair and even spread of representation there can be no more than 3 Directors from any geographical area.
