On Thursday October 19th, 2017, a public meeting took place at the Coronation Hall to elect new board members. The meeting reported back on how Ulverston BID has been spending almost £100,000 it collects from businesses in the town each year, and addressed questions about the operation of the BID. Members of the public attended the meeting along with BID levy payers .
The BID management board is made up of unpaid volunteers drawn from more than 450 businesses which pay the BID levy each year. Over the next 3 years one third of the board is up for election each year.
The BID board draws its members from five business categories, with 3 places on the board from each category: large business, small business, retail, hospitality, charities & schools.
There are currently 3 vacancies for new board members to represent large business, retail, charities & schools.
