Avondale Mainstreet is the outward facing brand for the Avondale Business Association that has been serving our local business community since its incorporation in 1998.
The association is also set up as a Business Improvement District. Read about the difference between the two below:
AVONDALE BUSINESS ASSOCIATION
The Avondale Business Association was incorporated to look after the best interests of local businesses and to improve local economic development in the area. It is run by an executive board comprised of local business members.
Each year, an AGM is held to vote for fresh board members. You must be a member of the association to vote and serve. Membership is free and we welcome applications from business and property owners within the BID Map Area.
Attend an Executive Board Meeting
Members of the Business Association are welcome to attend Executive Board meetings. Please contact the Manager for the date of the next meeting and to provide notice of attendance. Items for discussion of General Business should be proposed with a minimum of two weeks’ notice to enable time to add to the agenda.
Please note that information discussed in these business meetings is confidential to our members; punctuality and a high standard of professionalism and respect is mandatory.
Non-members wishing to attend an ABA meeting are welcome to present by application to the Manager.
BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS
Like 49 other business associations throughout Auckland, Avondale Business Association partners with Auckland Council under the Business Improvement District (BID) programme to help boost the local economy and business environment.
Property and business owners within the BID area pay a levy on their rates to Council which is made available to the business association to use on its activities. The business association board determines how this money is spent via its business and strategy plans.
