New themed digital networking events for BPCA member employees

BPCA is running hour-long virtual networking events for BPCA members who want to connect with each other on subjects that matter to them.

Member Huddle will be a hosted meeting on Zoom facilitated by a member of the BPCA Staff team.

Huddles will include subjects like non-lethal bird control, effective marketing and HR concerns.

BPCA member huddles networking meetings online now

Ian Andrew, BPCA Chief Exec, said:

“While BPCA’s Digital Forums and webinars have kept people in the loop and provided opportunities for learning, the thing we’ve not managed to recreate in a digital format is the networking and idea-sharing you get at a real-life event.

“Member Huddles will give members the opportunity to share ideas and ask questions from their peers in a safe, controlled way from the comfort of their home or office”.

All members are welcome to register for the one-hour event, however places are strictly limited to 25 people.

More than a webinar

Unlike traditional webinars, your video and microphone will be on during the Member Huddles. You’ll be expected to share your experiences and contribute to the group chat.

Participants will get one CPD point if they’re on BPCA Registered.
