As­so­ci­a­tion locks in per­ma­nent meet­ing

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - ~ James Ben­nett

Ber­ri­gan Dis­trict De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion has de­cided to change its meet­ing time and place to a per­ma­nent fix­ture.

The BDDA will now hold its meet­ings at the Ber­ri­gan Sports Club on the fourth Wed­nes­day of every month ex­cept for De­cem­ber.

Be­fore last Wed­nes­day’s meet­ing the BDDA was meet­ing every fourth Tues­day at ei­ther the Fed­eral Ho­tel or Royal Ho­tel, al­ter­nat­ing be­tween the two venues.

How­ever, every third month it would meet on the fourth Wed­nes­day at the Ber­ri­gan Sports Club.

The BDDA unan­i­mously agreed that the past sched­ule was con­fus­ing for busi­ness own­ers and in­di­vid­u­als.

Co-sec­re­tary Carla von Brock­husen said the new time would make for less con­fu­sion.

‘‘Orig­i­nally mov­ing around was aimed at sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­ness, how­ever it be­came very con­fus­ing for peo­ple. A per­ma­nent venue which also sup­ports the com­mu­nity club seems like a bet­ter op­tion.

‘‘The only vari­a­tion form the fourth Wed­nes­day rule is that the De­cem­ber meet­ing would fall af­ter Christ­mas so we are hold­ing that one early, on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 20,’’ Ms von Brock­husen said.

Also dis­cussed at the meet­ing was the ap­point­ment of a new trea­surer, which should be con­firmed soon.

The new trea­surer will re­place Me­gan Leach who has moved to South Aus­tralia.

The next BDDA meet­ing will be held Novem­ber 22.
