Our thoughts are with our West Virginia Marketers and their community as they begin the recovery efforts from one of the most devastating floods in West Virginia's history. For those who are interested in donating to the recovery, a reminder that BPAMA established a partnership with The Salvation Army to maximize our support to recovery efforts following disasters.

Donations made to The Salvation Army, specific to the West Virginia Floods (by indicating in the memo: "June 2016 West Virginia Floods") are allocated 100% directly to the WV flooding recovery efforts. When specified for the particular recovery effort, no portion of the donation is allocated to administrative or overhead support.

BPAMA partnered with The Salvation Army (SA) based on learnings from the BP Marketers following the deadly Birmingham, AL tornadoes in 2011. The SA is a member of the Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) which facilitates Interagency cooperation while responding to disasters. This group works closely with EMA and FEMA with a case management process as an integral part of the cross-reference to ensure that services are not duplicated.

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.
