Your town needs you!

We are looking for additional support, some of our excellent committee members are standing down and we have some exciting plans for this coming year that will need extra energy and drive!

The committee works by having four elected officers and eight committee members.  In order to share the work load four groups, the focus of the groups is as follows:


Focuses on member recruitment, welcoming new members, connecting with initiatives such as the Haywards Heath Town Team and other local organisations.  Our interns support this group by searching out potential members, updating our membership directory and promoting our events.


Gives our members the potential channels to spread word of their business via the membership directory, website, HHDBA social media, newsletter, local press, in addition to directly through meetings.


Aims to support business development, primarily through events such as Skills Workshops, Ask the Expert and the Action Learning Group.


Encompasses the Business Planning 4 Growth programme, the Intern scheme and other new initiatives.

Please consider joining the committee.

Officers take Team Lead roles where necessary and work in designated teams.  We are trying to grow our teams so if you would just like to work in a team please let us know.

We are aiming to have 12 elected people – 4 officers and 8 committee members.

It is a great way to engage with the local business community. All organisations need new ideas, new skills in order to re-new and refresh themselves.  We will be delighted to hear from you.
