The voice of business in Newark, representing over 1000 members

Your Committee

The day to day affairs of the business club are managed by an executive committee, see below. We welcome members to join, not only the executive committee but also the Action and Retail group if this is of interest to them or they have a particular skill set that they believe could be helpful to the committee. The chairman of The Business Club is elected every 3 years by the membership at the AGM, held in April. They generally chair the executive committee and the monthly breakfast meeting. The chairman holds office for a maximum of 3 years. Positions of secretary and treasurer are renewed annually. They are also nominated and elected at the AGM.
