Alex Wade, director of Wade Environmental and a regular contributor to Pest magazine, has been elected chair of BPCA’s Outreach and Communications Committee.
As chair, he will lead the committee, which sets the direction for how BPCA communicates with members, the general public, the press and politicians. He has also joined the BPCA executive board.
Mr Wade said: “I have always believed in giving members a platform to have their voices heard in the industry, as well as elevating the perception of our industry to the general public.
“With the O&C committee this is the perfect arena to achieve both of these tasks.”
The Outreach and Communications Committee is only a few years old and was created to keep public relations, public affairs and member communications accountable to the members BPCA represents.
BPCA committees meet around four times a year, generally via video call. Any employee of a BPCA member company can join a committee, the association said.
