Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

MAKE It Mac­cles­field is to hold its first An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing.

Ini­tially es­tab­lished as the Mac­cles­field Eco­nomic Fo­rum to en­gage lo­cal busi­nesses in ad­dress­ing the chal­lenges faced by the town, MIM be­came a Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Company in June 2013 and now acts as a hub to en­er­gise and support com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives and pro­mote Mac­cles­field.

Its well-at­tended se­ries of break­fast meet­ings gives par­tic­i­pants the op­por­tu­nity to air their views and to par­tic­i­pate in the de­bate about business in the town.

Lo­cal busi­nesses, char­i­ties and so­cial en­ter­prises also have an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote ac­tiv­i­ties.

At the AGM the Board will re­view the ac­tiv­i­ties of the company and present ac­counts for the last fi­nan­cial year.

MIM mem­ber­ship is open to any­one with an in­ter­est in the town of Mac­cles­field and is free.

Make it Mac­cles­field chair­woman Clare Hay­ward said: “MIM cur­rently has around 50 mem­bers and we’re keen to in­crease that num­ber.

“We are also look­ing for peo­ple to join the board to help in the de­liv­ery of some ex­cit­ing new projects.”

Any­one can at­tend, although only mem­bers will be able to cast a vote.

Mem­ber­ship forms will be avail­able and can also be down­loaded from www.makeit­mac­cles­field.
