About BPAMA

What is New?

THE 2016 BPAMA CONVENTION AND BUSINESS EXPO concluded last Wednesday, February 24th and 
what an event it was!  We had a record percent of Marketers attend with 61% of all jobbers there.  They represented
over 80% of BP's branded fuel volume.  Total registrations were over 600!  So I don't forget, check the Member's Only section
on the BPAMA website under Members Pages - 2016 Convention Presentations for links to most of the slides from the
convention.  I think this Convention had something for everyone:

*  General Sessions - Our guest speakers were Bob McNally from the Rapidan Group, Gray Taylor from Conexxus, and 
    Roy Williamson from Castrol shared their views on the oil industry, c-store growth, and planning for the future.
*  Breakfast Roundtables - John Owens from the Lewer Companies shared insights into managing your healthcare costs
    and Mitchell Vandiver of Strategies Inc. expanded the concepts of succession planning
*  Workshops - There were 6 workshops covering Consumer Expectations, Dealer Relationships, Crisis Management 
   Planning, Foodservice for Small Formats, Cybersecurity, and the Future of Fuels.
*  Business Expo - We had 50 key vendors with booths.  There were great conversations with Marketers and Vendors on products impacting your businesses.  BP's booth 
    showcased all of their new programs!
*  Regional Meetings - This was time for the Marketers and their BP teams to discuss implementing programs and issues that effected specific areas.
*  Networking - There were plenty of opportunities for networking, building relationships, and catching up with old friends

Thank you for your support and it was my pleasure to see so many Marketers in Miami last week!

Jack Allard
Executive Director

 

Partnering for Success

Since 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's objective is to strengthen the value of our member’s Brands by delivering increased profits, better returns, and growth through actions we collaboratively bring to our members.
 
 

BPAMA Leadership

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.
