Waiuku Business & Development Association Membership
Waiuku Business & Development Association operate a Business Improvement District (BID) which is one of 48 BIDs across the Auckland region.
Businesses that operate from commercial premises within the BID zone are subject to a targeted rate which automatically qualifies them for membership, however we do still require an application in order to keep our database up-to-date.
Businesses outside the BID boundary are welcome to join as an associate member for a fee of $100 excluding gst per year. You will enjoy all the same services and benefits as a BID member apart from voting rights at a WB&DA Annual General Meeting or Special Meeting.
Please Note: The person who signs the membership form is the only person with voting rights at the AGM or on WB&DA issues in accordance with council requirements. Associate members are unable to vote.
