What is the EGBA
The EGBA is a non-profit making association whose Honorary Chairman is Nicholas Soames, our constituency MP.
It is managed by an elected Executive Committee consisting of three or more (currently six) members and is run by four appointed officers:
Chief Executive Stuart Scholes
Manager Kate Bennett
Treasurer Roger Martell
Administrator Caroll Everest
As the business scene evolves, our businesses are all faced with new and exciting challenges, many of which will bring great opportunities provided they are seized upon.
The aim of the EGBA is to support and represent all trading, service and commercial enterprises within the greater East Grinstead area.
In today's world we all need to do some thinking "outside the box" and one way of stimulating this is by talking to others. We seek to facilitate information and communication flow through our monthly BUZZ meetings held on a member's premises and an informal Drink and Meet event at a local hostelry - and of course our regular newsletter.
We are in fact a Networking Association which works closely with Local Government to represent our member's views and where possible, resolve problems.
Training is not an area we focus on however when appropriate we initiate training meetings for members.
By working together within a professional organisation, East Grinstead businesses can ensure that they have a voice and that it will be heard.
