The BPCA Executive Board, which sets the strategy of the Association, has appointed three new directors.

The three new directors are: Rebekah Carral from Barricade Pest Control; Martin Cobbald from Dealey Environmental; and PestFix’s Anna Mollins.

Mr Cobbald acknowledged that networking in BPCA is amazing.

“If people don’t know you’re there, how can they possibly get in touch with you to hear what you have to say,” he said. “That’s a massive thing for a small business. If you’re a sole trader and you’re looking to expand your business, getting more involved is really helpful, as you can see how other people do things.”

Mr Cobbald said that being part of BPCA is like you’re part of a wider team of sharing, collaboration and networking, which is just as important as education.

Ms Carral added: “Most people in the industry know me because of my involvement with BPCA. There’s so much happening in BPCA that there’s something there for everyone.

“To some, it might sound like a massive contribution, but the time commitment is minimal for what you get back from it: you build so many valuable connections.

“If you’re going to pay for membership, you should push to get as much as possible out of that membership.”
