In July 2013 the Highfields Better Business (HBB) meeting voted to change its name to Highfields & District Business Connections (HDBC) and approved the updating of its Working Charter to reflect the new name and some minor changes to its purpose, function and target market area.  This Working Charter is based on the approved charter of the previous HBB group.  It has been expanded to comply with the requirements of incorporation as specified in the standard Office of Fair Trading model and supplements the generic state government charter for incorporated associations.

In March 2015, some changes to the Charter were proposed by the Committee around changing some committee roles, member eligibility requirements, payment fee structure (allowing a pay-as-you-go breakfast option) and adding an advocacy role. These Charter changes were confirmed at the June 2015 AGM and the Charter was modified in October 2015.
