Join us for our AGM!

We invite all BID businesses to join us for the St Albans BID Annual General Meeting (AGM) with complimentary wine and canapes in the newly-launched Lussmann’s private dining rooms, on Wednesday 6th June from 5.30pm-7.30pm.

We will briefly cover what the BID has achieved so far and outline our plans for this year. The formal business of the evening will be to appoint new BID Board Directors, to fill current vacancies. This should last no more than 30 minutes, leaving ample time to network with other local businesses and talk with your BID team too.

If you wish to vote for the appointment of the new BID Board Directors, you must have confirmed your membership. For more information regarding this, please click here. (If you are not able to attend but wish to register your vote in advance, please email, sally.merridan@stalbansbid.com).

Please join us for this important meeting. Places are free but limited to 2 per business.
