The Annual General Meeting of the BIA members is free to attend and is designed to review the previous year and help direct the future of the Association.


Members will hear from BIA Directors and office staff as we discuss successes, challenges, strategies and new initiatives. Members present at the meeting will have the opportunity to review the financial statements of 2023, preview the BIA operating budget for 2025, and vote to approve the nominated 2024/25 Board of Directors.

  • Each Commercial Property Owner and Business Tenant within the BIA are eligible to receive 1 vote. No individual may hold more than 1 vote, regardless of number of properties or businesses they own. 

  • If members own multiple properties or businesses, they may authorize representatives to register for additional votes. The same applies if the Business Tenant is also the Property Owner, resulting in the opportunity for a second vote. 

  • This years AGM will include a review of the 2023 Financial Statements, a preview of the 2025 operating budget, votes on bylaw amendments and an introduction to your 2024 / 2025 Board of Directors.

  • As new seats open up, candidates for the vacant Board positions can be officially nominated by any DCBIA member.    

Beverages and Appys will be served at the AGM and a casual get together is scheduled after the AGM meeting in the hotel lounge for those who wish to stay.  We do hope you will join us in the lounge following the event.
