BPCA Committees and Special Interest Groups

BPCA has two committees to drive the Association's functions, with an Executive Board member chairing each. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are open to everyone and are focused around specific pest management themes. 

Join a BPCA Committee or Special Interest Group

Committees of the Board

All full members have the opportunity to join our committees, and influence changes both in the Association and the wider industry.

Each committees' responsibility is to represent the ideas, decisions and proposals of their peers to the Executive Board and influence the strategy and direction of the Association. The Chair of each committee is responsible for ensuring the Executive Board is fully aware of what is happening in the industry sector represented by each committee.
