The Blyth BIA started in 2012 as a collaborative effort to unite the local businesses of Blyth and area to put forth a joint effort to promote local businesses and enhance the Blyth experience to business owners, residents and visitors. With membership growing every year, the Blyth BIA has become a well-recognized and valued association in the village and has many successful achievements on record.
The formation of a BIA automatically makes every registered business with commercial space in the village a member, with dues designated solely for the BIA’s use and collected by the municipality. The Blyth BIA is cognisant that there are a significant amount of businesses based at home and around the surrounding communities who could benefit by belonging to our association as Associate Members. Associate membership is voluntary and at the discretion of individual businesses. Those members would have the ability to participate in various programs and promotions and will reap the benefits of being part of a group.
All members are invited to attend monthly general meetings where they are updated on activities of the executive; as well as participating in decisions concerning various existing and future programs in which they may become involved.
This is your opportunity to become a part of an organization dedicated to the success of all its members. For a yearly fee of only $85.00, you can become a member and reap the benefits of our mutual success.
The BIA General Meetings are held at 8:00 am the first Wednesday of every month at the Blyth Arena. Please feel welcome to attend these open meetings to learn more. If you are already convinced of the benefits that partnering with the Blyth BIA can provide, we would welcome your request for membership. For further information please contact Rick Elliott, Blyth BIA Chair.
