After a couple of months deliberating, designing and building, the new BHBPA website has gone live this week. You can see it when you go to www.bhbpa.co.uk as before. The old website, which served us well for nearly seven years, looked rather tired. The new one, on the other hand, is responsive and looks more fluid, exciting and modern. We now have full control over all the content. I hope you will agree upon the improvement.
Of course there are changes and understandably there have been some teething issues when I came to write this newsletter, but we are very pleased with the work Preview Graphics have done, and have to thank Wes Earp in particular for his efforts on our behalf. You will find that there is no longer a password protected members area, nor is there a forum. It was decided that each were no longer necessary. You can still find a list of member companies, and if you click on the name you will be taken straight to their website. As for the Forum, we had had no posting on there since 2012!
Do take a look and if you have a minute get back to me with comments – a kind of review as it were. By the same token, if you approve and would like to give me a testimonial to put on the site, please feel free to do so.
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
