The Barrow BID Board may be composed of up to 14 Directors. It will be accountable for:

  • Upholding and promoting the BID vision and objectives;
  • Delivering the four priorities of the BID Proposal efficiently and effectively;
  • Promoting the mutual and active support of businesses
  • Managing a BID Manager and setting priorities of work

This is a voluntary role, as none of the Directors will receive any remuneration. The Board is committed to meeting monthly, but at least 4 times per year, with meetings anticipated to last no more than two hours and held at times carefully planned to maximise attendance and minimise any inconvenience.

Composition of the Board

The Barrow BID Board will be composed of a broad cross-section of BID levy-paying businesses, organisations and individuals. Ideally the elected Directors of the Board should represent all the businesses within the town and be made up of: large retailers, small retailers, professional& financial services, hospitality, food & drink, health & personal care, charitable, other sectors, local authority and optional co-opted members.

The rules governing the conduct of BID Company Directors will be set out in the BID Company Articles of Association.

The completion and submission of the Nomination Form cannot guarantee a seat on the Board of Directors. In order to ensure that a range of relevant sectors & skills are represented on the Board, candidates will need to set out their experience and their commitment to ensuring the success of the Barrow BID.

To apply to become a BID Director your company must first be a member of Barrow BID.
