Members Obligations:
In return for having the opportunity to network in a non competitive environment, members are asked to take their membership seriously.

  • Attendance at the group should be as regular as possible, for that reason the steering committee have agreed that any member who regularly misses more than 2 consecutive meetings may be liable to lose their place in the group and their category will be made available.
  • Members agree to pay the meeting fee for each meeting and it is assumed that all meetings will be attended.
  • Members are normally expected to pay for any meetings missed without prior notification or good reason.
  • Members agree to uphold the highest standards of business practice when dealing with other members and referrals and leads given to them – The group needs to create and maintain a good name for itself.

Co-operation – Not Competition:
In order to protect members interests within the marketing group, membership is strictly limited to ‘one trade category per member’ this means that at any one time there will only be one florist, one plumber, one carpet fitter etc.

  • Membership applications are discussed and decided upon  by the membership coordinator and the steering committee as required. in the event that an application may overlap or be in competition with an existing members status – the existing member will have the right to veto the application.
  • Members who have category objections or issues with existing members should bring them to the attention of the committee prior to the end of month meeting.
  • A member must only represent their own  trade or category ie the category applied for and subsequently displayed on the BCC website
