Setting up an administering body

Setting up an administering body

An 'administering body' is necessary to coordinate the activities of the creative enterprises hub, seek out property owners willing to grant licences to use their buildings, and elect projects and program participants. There are several options for setting up the administering body.

In other places - particularly where the community is smaller and the properties involved are few - it may not be necessary to establish a separate structure. 

For only one or two properties, a local arts council, business group, or not-for-profit organisation may be able to take on the management role. If this is the case though, it is important to ensure that the arrangements are clear and transparent and that everyone involved has a clear understanding of those arrangements.
