Nominations are now being sought to establish the Poole BID LTD company directors
Last month Poole BID received a positive ballot to take the BID Business Plan forward for the next 5 years. Now the work begins for us to start delivering on those promises that we set out in the BID proposal document, one of which is setting up Poole BID Ltd and electing the Board of Directors. The company will be a not–for–profit, Company Limited by Guarantee with a Board of up to 16 Directors representing BID levy paying businesses in the following representation:-
o Representatives from each geographic area (see attached map) x 6 directors
o Multiple retailers x 2 directors
o Independent retailers x 2 directors
o Catering and hospitality (1 licensed 1 non-licensed) x 2 directors
o Professional Services x 2 directors
o Local Authority x 2 directors
As set out in the document, the maximum number of representatives for each BID Area shall not exceed 3 members to ensure equal representation across the BID area.
This Board will be responsible for the financial and legal management of the company, recruiting and managing the BID Manager, monitoring and steering the delivery of the plan and for representing businesses in their area (see guidance notes for Directors below).
Appointment to the Board will be based on either:
• Your particular business sector
• Your geographical area of the town
Nominations will be transferred from Area to Sector and vice versa at the discretion of the Interim Board in consultation with the nominated candidate, to ensure that there is equitable representation by sector and area.
Please complete the nomination form and return it by 5pm on the 6th June 2016.
When all nominations have been received, Sectors or Areas with an over subscription of candidates will then be determined by postal ballot. Details of this process will be issued at the time.
Please note that the Directors representing the Local Authority will be appointed directly by the Borough of Poole.
