BPCA scoops two excellence awards

The British Pest Control Association was delighted to be recognised at the Association Excellence Awards in October.

 790 association excellence awards bpca win 2

The Awards are held to recognise and reward the achievements of trade bodies, professionals, membership organisations and associations.

BPCA bagged a silver trophy for Best Association Partnership or Collaboration, for our work on stopping the unauthorised sale of pesticides alongside Crop Protection Association and eBay.

Judges for the awards commented on the project, saying that it was “good evidence of collaboration and a positive outcome”. They continued:

“This was a good example of a tripartite collaboration between three different companies, to prevent unauthorised sale of potentially dangerous substances.

“An ambitious project, given the size and scope of eBay’s listings. An outstanding partnership...with positive outcomes that will support the industry in continuing to deliver the original goal.”

The second nomination came in the category ‘Best Development of an Existing Association Event – over 400 delegates’, which saw BPCA take home the bronze trophy for PestEx 2019.

BPCA was praised by judges for the “brave decision” to bring the event in-house, introducing the British Pest Management Awards to the event and for a great collaboration with British Cleaning Council.

BPCA’s Staff team was represented at the awards by Events Officer Sarah Holland and Technical Manager Dee Ward-Thompson.

“The whole team worked really passionately on both delivering a successful PestEx and helping eBay to clarify its policy on the sale of pesticides,” said Dee, “We couldn’t be more pleased to be recognised for those efforts by the wider Association sector.”
