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.
"“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 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."
"“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”"
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
