Any person, group or organization requesting support from the Old Market Business Association (OMBA) for a public event to be held in the Old Market must apply to the OMBA Event Committee using the prescribed outline.
The application will be reviewed by the OMBA Events Committee, which will recommend approval, approval with modification or denial to the OMBA Board of Directors. The application and Events Committee recommendation will be discussed at a regular monthly OMBA Board meeting. At the following OMBA membership meeting, discussion of the event will be placed on the agenda; and the event organizers will be allowed to make a presentation. A majority of those attending the meeting for which there is a quorum may approve, approve with modification or deny support for the event regardless of the recommendation of the Events Committee or Board.
The OMBA Board of Directors meeting is the third Monday of every month. The OMBA general membership meeting is the first Tuesday of every month. Event applications should be submitted 90 days in advance of the event to assure adequate review time.
