How do we operate?
The activities and responsibilities are shared between several sub-committees who report back to the main Committee meeting every month.
Some of these sub-committees and their duties are as follows:
Membership we encourage membership from all businesses operating within the Cowes, East Cowes, Northwood and Gurnard area, and also allow Associate Membership for individuals who have an interest in the business side of Cowes. Membership subscriptions provide a source of income for Cowes Business Association activities.
Council Liaison we work closely with both Cowes Town and IOW Councils on matters such as flooding, rubbish collection, street cleaning etc. Both Councils listen closely to our input.
Public Events we co-ordinate with all Cowes-based events so that our membership are aware of what is going on, and can make plans accordingly.
Flowers we manage the planting hanging and watering of hanging baskets throughout the length of the High Street area.
Flags & Banners we manage the all the flags and banners up and down the High Street area.
Publicity & Promotion it is vital that Cowes promotes itself on an on-going basis both on the Island and further afield.
Maritime we co-ordinate with all maritime event organisers to ensure that visiting yachtsmen leave Cowes with a positive story to tell.
