The Officers remain unchanged:

Vice Chair – Emily Coomber, Frettens Solicitors
Treasurer – Roger Wareham, Partner at Saffrey Champness
Alex Eaton, Chartered Marketer and Chair, said: “Last year was a great year for the Association. We organised and hosted twenty-three events across the year and all were a great success. This is my third year in office as Chair and I will use it to continue to grow the relationships I have been nurturing with national and international organisations such as the RICS, RIBA and the CIOB. I am now looking at adding RTPI and ICE to the mix to cover all areas of the sector and make their events more accessible to all our members, whether they’re members of these organisations or not.
“I am proud to be the BPA’s Chair again this year and will continue my mission to provide an increasing amount of quality events across the year and to attract more members. Our functions provide a very relaxed environment for members and guests to see each other and catch up with what’s going on, be it locally, nationally or worldwide.”
The mission of the BPA is to bring together property professionals from all aspects of our industry across the region, to provide information, to encourage fruitful relationships and to create business opportunities for all members.
The BPA – which is not for profit – now has 1000+ supporters from Weymouth and Dorchester, Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Southampton and London areas. Its members include property professionals across all sectors.
If you are involved in the property arena and are interested in attending any of the events, guests are invited to attend up to twice before being encouraged to become members. Further details can be obtained from email@example.com or by visiting www.bpa-online.co.uk, but be warned, their events tend to book up very quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.
