First, our thoughts are with all of those marketers, their families, employees, and people dealing with the floods in the midwest. It is a difficult situation for many people and we will offer to help in any way we can. Please watch for information or reach out to the Salvation Army if you can.
There is a lot going on right now and I know everyone is busy. We continue to work on outdoor EMV to both inform marketers about the need to progress on EMV equipment and to stay in touch with BP on how the EMV software is progressing. We are spreading the word about our new BPAMA Retirement Savings Program which for many marketers can mean savings in reduced fees and shifting work to our vendor partners! We are exploring how the EV market is changing consumer behavior as well as c-store offers. Our Working Committees are following GetUpside to support BP on this program. Toss in work with BP's communications team on improving BPbetter and we have a full plate. You should have received the minutes from the February Board meeting recently which is another way to stay up to date on our key issues.
Thanks again for your support and please reach out to your NLB members if you have any issues we need to address.
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.
