Board of Directors

The Exchange District BIZ management board is comprised of 12 elected members from Exchange District businesses and one City Council appointee, whom oversee the operation of the BIZ.

Directors are elected to the Board at an Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is typically held in each autumn. The yearly programming structure and operating budget are subject to approval by the BIZ members at the AGM and then City Council.

The Exchange District BIZ volunteer Board members represent a wide range of business activity in the area, from large corporations to small owner-operated enterprises. The BIZ also welcomes input from other area stakeholders, including arts and cultural organizations, educational institutions and residents, to strengthen the core of people cooperating to promote and improve the Exchange.
