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.
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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.""
"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. "
