BP Amoco Marketers Association (BPAMA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to representing the collective voice of BP jobber marketers. The association is committed to advancing the jobber channel of trade as the preferred channel of trade within BP.
BPAMA's relationship with BP
The BPAMA/BP relationship is based upon open, candid communication with mutually beneficial resolution. BP looks to BPAMA for input and feedback on new programs, policies and strategies, while BPAMA is resolute in sharing members' issues and concerns. Multi-branded jobbers that participate in BPAMA often comment that the relationship with BP is truly unique within the industry. It is a dynamic and collaborative partnership where active dialogue is encouraged and respect is reciprocal.
Who BPAMA represents
Comprised of more than 400 BP branded marketers representing 10,000 retail locations from diverse business sizes and geographic areas, BPAMA is a powerhouse of business knowledge. Members often call upon each other to exchange ideas and best practices. We proudly claim many of the best and brightest marketers as BPAMA members!
Through ongoing communication, the association keeps members informed of significant industry news. A major convention and trade show is hosted by BPAMA each year to bring jobber members together with BP senior management. Workshops are offered to further enhance jobber knowledge.
Associate member advantages
In addition to jobber members, BPAMA welcomes associate members who market their products and services to BP branded jobbers. This is a select group of companies who have a proven track record of serving the interests of BP jobbers. BPAMA has negotiated member discounts with many of these vendors. The trade show at the annual convention offers BPAMA jobber members the opportunity to meet with these vendors and learn about the latest products and services to enhance their business.
Representing jobber interests since 1974 (originating as the Southern Gulf Oil Distributors Association), BPAMA has remained a formidable force through significant historical and industry-sweeping changes. Today, BPAMA has emerged as the most effective association of its kind in the industry.
