Here at Business against Poverty (BaP) HQ, we love announcing our Member of the Month which acknowledges each organisation’s contribution to our work. The Member of the Month is announced on our website and social media, and features in our monthly newsletter which is distributed to approximately 1900 recipients, all of which provides great profile-raising opportunities.
Every year we also present one member with the Business of the Year Award at our annual flagship event, the Gala Ball. In previous years the lucky winner has been selected by the senior management team, but for 2014-15, we have decided to change the selection process and are handing the vote to you, our BaP members!
A shortlist will be compiled of all Members of the Month from the preceding year (December through to November), and we will be asking each eligible organisation to submit a short statement about their business, their values and what being a member of BaP means to them. The statements will be published and we will ask BaP members to vote for the BaP Business of the Year Award winner.
If you would like to be considered for a future Member of the Month between April and October this year and, as a consequence, automatically included in the shortlist for Business of the Year Award 2014-15, please contact our team to find out about opportunities to engage at a deeper level with People against Poverty/Business against Poverty. Members of the Month already eligible for this year’s award are: Keith Lunt (Opal Print), Chris May (Mayden), Dr Sally Vanson (The Performance Solution), Wayne McMaster (Zeke Creative) and Mark Rowe (Monster Travel).
We look forward to working with you, and don’t forget to pencil 22 November 2014 into your diaries and book your place for the Ball!
