The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) held its AGM at the Leicester Marriott, announcing changes to streamline the management of the association.
The changes have also been designed to support CEO designate Tom Reynolds as he implements a new three year strategy.
The meeting voted for a change in governance structure that will bring together the Board and management committees into one governing committee.
It also proposed a number of changes to the articles of association.
Tom Reynolds confirmed the focus of the trade body would continue to be product compliance with a growing emphasis on sustainability.
He spoke of the core values around credibility and how the association would deliver its outcomes via education, enforcement, awareness and influence.
He said, “The BMA has a thriving membership and strong foundations. The strategy I am developing will continue to support members with the things they value and deliver a clear purpose for the future.”
Current CEO Yvonne Orgill updated members on the current campaigns, outlining the progress on the introduction of the Unified Water Label (UWL).
Orgill has taken on the role of MD at the UWL and the association will manage the label until at least the end of 2020.
Details for the 2019 Bathroom & Kitchen Business Conference, which takes place on the October 8th at the Carden Park Hotel, Cheshire, were also presented, which will feature retail influencer Cate Trotter,
