BMA triumphs with coveted TAF Award for Association Team of the Year

The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) is proud to announce its latest triumph at the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards 2024, where it clinched the highly coveted Association Team of the Year Award.

Held annually and supported by the Department of Business and Trade, the TAF Awards recognise excellence, innovation, and best practices among Trade Associations across the UK.

In their 21st year, the 2024 TAF Awards were held on Thursday, 22nd February at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London. They serve as a testament to the pivotal role played by Trade Associations in shaping industry standards and fostering collaboration. The accolade for the BMA underscores its unwavering commitment to advancing the interests of its members and promoting excellence within the bathroom manufacturing sector.

“We are truly honoured to have won this outstanding award,” remarked Tom Reynolds, Chief Executive of the BMA. “It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of my fabulous team, including Amy Kirk, Andrew McLean, Sandra Cliff, Lisa Carnwell, and Jane Blakeborough.

“Because our team is streamlined, each individual has to work effectively to deliver member engagement and satisfaction. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved with this award.”

The TAF Awards represent a significant highlight in the Trade Association calendar, providing well-deserved recognition for organisations like the BMA that consistently demonstrate excellence and dedication in their field. This latest achievement further solidifies the BMA’s position as a leader in the industry.

This prestigious win follows the BMA’s success at the 2023 TAF Awards, where it secured the ESG Initiative of the Year award. The consecutive recognition underscores an ongoing commitment to delivering for its members within the sector.

Emily Wallace, Chief Executive of the Trade Association Forum and one of the head judges on the panel, said:

“The BMA is an excellent example of how to build an effective and high-performing team whilst working remotely. The Judges were impressed by the combined impact of the team and how they work together to deliver exceptional results for members.”
