It has been a very busy year and hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner. I just completed our 5th Lunch & Learn. My thanks to everyone who came out. We saw 39 marketers and 68 people at these sessions in Charlotte, Columbus, Madison, Lansing, and Coralville IA. Add in stops at MPACT, GOA, and FMPA and we had the chance to speak with over 50% of all members through these sessions. Your feedback was invaluable in addressing issues and setting our agenda.
The convention seems so long ago now but the focus on technology lives on. Be sure to look at our newsletters to see the latest on EV, social media support, and our favorite topic - EMV. These areas will be a focus in 2019 along with other trends impacting your businesses.
Please watch for news on the BPAMA elections later in November. You will have a chance to vote for your regional NLB members starting on November 15th. I would like to thank Quinn Ricker who was a great contributor on the Board over the last four plus years. His knowledge of the business and challenges to both BP and his peers were truly valuable. I'd also like to thank those marketers who are running for another term on the Board. I appreciate all you do for BPAMA and your fellow marketers. You really make a difference.
Thanks for your support!
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.
