The purpose of the Annual General Meeting is to gain short-term and medium-term approval from our members for the business plan and financial reporting. It provides the Business North Harbour executive with the opportunity to detail programme performance and results over the past 12 months.
Business North Harbour considers the AGM planning process as a key management tool and measurement, providing operational governance, transparency and accountability for our membership. The rules that govern the AGM process are outlined in the Business North Harbour Incorporated Constitution.
We work for and with you, therefore attendance at the AGM is encouraged, so that together we can shape the future of North Harbour.
As managers of the North Harbour Business Improvement District (NHBID), the AGM will provide Business North Harbour's Chair, Peter Lamberton and General Manager, Janine Brinsdon the opportunity to report the core member services and programmes outcomes achieved over the past twelve months. Plus they will seek approval from members present as to the direction of these programmes and services in the coming 36 months.
