Draft 2017-2018 Budget

The proposed Marpole Business Association Draft Budget for 2017-2018 totals $185,952.

The Board of Directors is proposing a modest increase of 2% in the member levy funding rate.

Fiscal management of MBA funds by the Board of Directors has been prudent and accountable to the membership at the Annual General Meetings.

Member priorities, as evidenced in the 2016 Member Survey and in the 2010 Long-Range Strategic Plan, have demonstrated a need for continued maintenance of existing projects, and a desire to explore new programming options.
The future success and effectiveness of the MBA in serving its members' interests is dependent upon moderate budgetary growth.

Thank you for your continued support.
