Education- Getting Started
The BPMA held its Member Orientation seminar on 27 September, where 19 individuals from member companies attended. It was the first seminar to be presented by BPMA’s membership manager, George Turnbull (pictured right) who delivered an engaging afternoon that informed and educated members. He said: “The seminar gives our members an insight of what to expect from the industry while gaining tips on how to make the most out of their business and what pitfalls to watch out for.
I ran through the benefits you can receive from the association and what sales tools the BPMA can provide to help communicate the message to your customers.” Turnbull said he had thoroughly enjoyed delivering his first presentation. “The sharing of ideas, frustrations and advice between members shows that we are creating and working within a community. Everyone who attended found the event to be extremely beneficial. It inspired them to implement new plans into their existing model.” Member orientation is a half-day seminar that is free for members to attend. It is targeted at new members to the association, those looking for a refresher, and new staff within established member companies.
