Partnering for SuccessBPAMA has become a unique Association due to it’s collaborative working relationship between Marketers, our branded supplier, and vendors. It is through BPAMA that specific issues and concerns are identified and addressed with BP senior management. By working together, BPAMA members constructively 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.
