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.
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"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."
"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. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
