September certainly has not brought a slow down to everyone's activities! Here are some of the updates you will find in the website:
* You can be looking forward to feedback from several sources over the next month or two. The Marketing & Technology Working Committees will be meeting September 21st to the 23rd in Chicago. Both WC's have full agendas in support of BP's programs. The 3rd Quarter Newsletter will be coming out the first week of October so please be looking for those. Our Premium Affiliate Members will have some informational flyers included with this newsletter so be sure to review their programs! Finally, the next NLB meeting is scheduled for October 26th to 28th in Atlanta. Be sure to watch for the minutes from this meeting.
* Only 5 months to go until the 2016 BPAMA Convention & Business Expo! Our convention pages on the website have been updated and the Registration site will be live by the end of this month. We will let everyone know when it is available. We look forward to seeing everyone in Miami next February!
* In November and December this year we will be piloting a series of BPAMA Lunch & Learns. The goal will be to meet with small groups of Marketers to share we the Association is doing to add value to your businesses, to hear the issues that are on your mind, and to share an educational presentation on key topics of the day. Our pilot sessions are planned for Iowa, Minnesota, and North Carolina later this year. We will then hope to continue with these sessions throughout 2016 as an ongoing process to stay in touch. I look forward to seeing everyone over time at these sessions!
Finally, please welcome our new Affiliate Members! We were joined in the last two months by Hughes, Lane Supply, Blair Sign Company, Rugid Guard, Fintech, & Intevacon. Please be sure to check out their goods & services to see if they might handle one of your needs!
Check back soon to see what is new! Thank you for your support and stay in touch!
Partnering for SuccessSince 1974, BPAMA has been the unparalleled leader in alliance between the Marketer and Supplier in the Petroleum Industry. The strength of BPAMA lies in the power of partnership, Marketers and BP coming together as collaborators to share business expertise, insights and shape the future for the BP branded business with the goal of achieving win-win opportunities. BPAMA members influence strategy and program decisions impacting BP's jobber channel of trade. Programs are developed with Marketer’s input, strategic decisions are identified early, and creative approaches to problems and growth are explored. Add a vendor program where suppliers and Marketers can access goods and services needed for their businesses and BPAMA truly adds value to those who belong.
BPAMA is led by a group of Marketers who are willing to volunteer their time to work on behalf of all BP branded jobbers. By using their knowledge of the industry, helping to identify key issues you all face, and work with their peers, this group of Marketers helps to add value to all our members by strengthening the BP brand. BPAMA is run by an Executive Director who reports to the National Leadership Board. The NLB is made up of 14 Marketers and 4 BP Senior Managers. We invite you to get involved with your Association by becoming a NLB member, joining one of the Working Committees, or by simply reaching out to a NLB member or Affiliate Member and see what BPAMA has to offer. To learn more about the work of the boards and committees members may log on and review the achievements and work in progress.
