HTCA chairman John Eastwood said a limited company would provide "a stronger image of greater permanence and greater confidence".
HTCA has played a major role in promoting the town.
HTCA lobbies Kirklees Council on issues, including car parking and litter problems.
The HTCA teamed up with the Examiner to produce the Huddersfield Magazine on a quarterly basis, starting with the Spring issue.
The magazine continued to be organised, edited and written by the HTCA, with the Examiner selling advertising and taking responsibility for design, print and distribution.
Huddersfield's Plant Sales, organised by the HTCA, were again a success in June and July (see photographs at bottom of page).
The HTCA also worked closely with the Twinning Office at Kirklees to bring some market traders over from our twin town Besanion, to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the twinning.
The Christmas Lights Switch-On in November was a collaboration between the HTCA and Home 107.9fm.
