On this very day the new Europe-wide GDPR legislation comes into force. It means that there will be tighter rules on data, the holding of data and the use of data without permission.
The BHBPA holds important contact data about member companies on a single database. We send out a weekly newsletter and occasional other messages of importance or invitations to events. As a general policy established even before I took on this role we never give out members’ data.
Now, as an organisation which communicates from Business To Business, we are reminding you, our members, that as before, if you no longer wish to receive communications from the BHBPA, you can click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of the newsletter. This is your chance to ‘opt out’ and will result in us deleting the contact information we have for you.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"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."
"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. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
