I hope that everyone has received their Save the Date postcard for the 2018 BPAMA Convention & Business Expo. Planning is well underway for next years convention. We are headed back out to Phoenix, AZ to the historical Arizona Biltmore. This unique resort creates a great opportunity for everyone who will be attending. We have a team reaching out to vendors on August 22nd to join us at the Business Expo with goods and services that meet your needs. Registration for Marketers will open in September and we will let everyone know when that goes live.
We are focused on three strategic threads for the convention content. Our speakers, workshops, and topics will focus on how you business is impacted by changing technology, by changing consumers, and by changing what it takes to remain competitive in today's market. Everyone's business, regardless of models, are impacted by these threads and understanding how they impact your business going forward. The chance to meet with your peers to discuss these topics and learn from each other will be a priority as always. Combine this with the opportunity to hear from BP's senior leadership, plus industry experts and we have the makings of a powerful three days.
In the meantime I hope everyone had a great summer. The Marketing & Technology Working Committees are meeting in September and the National Leadership Board will be meeting in October. Don't hesitate to reach out to your Board members if there are specific topics or issues that need to be addressed. I look forward to seeing everyone next February in Phoenix!
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.
