18 Great Guildford St
You are warmly invited to attend Better Bankside’s thirteenth AGM. The meeting comes just after the half way point of our third five-year term. As ever we are keen to check whether our programme remains as relevant as possible to the area’s needs and delivers good value for money to our membership.
During the course of the year, we are indebted to those businesses who become involved in our governance for the strategic and operational advice they provide. This is a good time to consider what we are doing and what other services could/should be provided – both for the duration of this term to 2020 and in the Proposal that we will ask businesses to vote on in 2019.
At the AGM, there is a chance for you to join Better Bankside, if you have not already done so. In effect, we treat all levy payers as members, but formally joining Better Bankside allows you to vote at the AGM, and be nominated to become a director of Better Bankside. All levy payers have the right to join Better Bankside and non-levy payers can apply to join at the discretion of the board. All members are eligible to stand for the board and/or to nominate another member. A list of current directors is enclosed. All those retiring by rotation are eligible to be reappointed to the board.
The AGM provides an opportunity to ask the board any questions you may have about how we are investing our income on your behalf, or in relation to our activities more generally. Better Bankside’s audited accounts will be available for review on our website seven days before the meeting.
The official proceedings will be wrapped up within half an hour. Stay for drinks and nibbles and meet our board and team members. New members are always welcome to get involved with our governance through joining one of our eight theme groups, which are the driving force behind our major areas of work; place marketing, the public realm, business and employee engagement, safety, cleaning, travel and corporate responsibility.
We'd love to talk to you about the exciting new projects we are bringing to Bankside.
It would be helpful if you could RSVP in advance by emailing info [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: AGM%20RSVP)
