There are two ways that you can get involved:
Join the board
The board of directors provides the strategic oversight and direction of the Your Pontypridd BID company- the legal entity that manages the BID- and is responsible for ensuring that the BID levy funds are properly invested in accordance with the agreed BID business plan as voted for by Pontypridd businesses. Their purpose is to oversee the delivery of the business plan, projects and the efficient running of the company as well as the general promotion of the Pontypridd BID Company and Pontypridd so as to support the Company’s principal activity .

Become a member of a theme group
There are 3 groups that you could get involved with:
