About business associations

A business or trader association is an incorporated group of business owners and operators in a shopping strip or centre who join forces and work together to define, represent and achieve the collective interests of its members and the wider business community.

Business associations work in partnership with Council and are managed by an elected Executive Committee of Management, which is accountable to its members. Each association is directed by a business plan and regular meetings of members.
