One week to go! I have to say we have a really good agenda planned. Our keynote speakers now include Howard Tullman from 1871, Hank Armour from NACS, John Eichberger from the Fuels Institutes, and Robert Herjavec from the tv show The Shark Tank. They will tackle how innovation impacts businesses, a view of the convenience industry today, the future of vehicles, and keys to entrepreneurial success. BP's leadership will be here with Doug Sparkman, Rick Altizer, and Nicola Buck sharing views and programs. Subject matter experts will host 6 workshops covering outside EMV, Generational Differences, How to Work with the Media, Dealer Contracts, Loyalty Programs, and Best in Class Data. We have 2 breakfast round tables planned on Organizational Structures for the Future and details about a unique 401k program called a MEP. The expo is full with 52 booths. Add the Innovation Center where you can see tomorrow's technology today. Top it all off with an amazing historic venue and those who attend will receive information they can use to take home as well as chances to network with peers from across the network.
We have over 580 people registered to attend including 329 Marketers and 88 people from BP. I look forward to seeing everyone in Phoenix next week!
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.
