Addressing the Board

Addressing the Board

If you would like to address the board directly, we can add you on an upcoming Board meeting agenda as follows:

  • The agenda will allocate 15-20 minutes for your presentation and board discussion. As such, I recommend you choose your highest priority topic (or perhaps two) for your presentation 
  • Your agenda submission must be received (at info@downtowncarletonplace.com ) at least one week before the BIA Board meeting date (BIA Board meetings occur the 2nd Wednesday of each month)
  • Your agenda submission should include the
    • The topic name
    • A brief description of the need or goal
    • All presentation material. Ideally in electronic form such as PowerPoint, but paper is acceptable. 
    • The concise “ask” of the board. This should be one sentence and will form the basis of a motion, should a board vote be appropriate. 
  • If your “ask” requires funds and/or BIA staff time, please come prepared to answer such questions during the meeting.  
  • This material will give the board sufficient time and information to prepare and thus maximize everyone’s time at the meeting.

Additionally, as a recommendation, before you give a presentation, I would encourage you to attend a few Board meetings so you can see what issues we face, what ideas are tabled and learn first-hand more about our mandate and how we are working to promote our downtown.
