The Business Improvement Association Board (BIA) of Carleton Place will have its annual General meeting this Thursday, January 28, 2010. Every business owner and estate owner in town is encouraged to join the activity. The meeting will be held at the Carleton Heritage Inn situated at Bridge Street. Registration will start at 6 pm.
After the dinner, which will start at 6:30 pm and will cost $10 for each BIA member, the association’s proposed budget for the year 2010 shall be presented to its members for their approval.
The Business Improvement Association stresses that those who are planning to attend the meeting should make their reservations for the dinner and pay for the fees in advanced. Guests were encouraged to RSVP before last Friday, January 21.
Guests who paid for the dinner can come and win two sets of tickets for Ottawa Senators Hockey games. These tickets are sponsored by The Record News EMC and Tomahawk Technologies.
For those non-members who want to attend the meeting, the dinner will cost $25.
The Business Improvement Association of Carleton Place started in 1979. Carelton Place’s business community appealed that the downtown area be made an improvement area by the use of provincial legislations and municipal bylaws. Thus, the BIA was organized.
