Have you spotted a BPA Star?
There are inspiring examples of fantastic service within our sport. And we believe it’s time for them to be recognised. That’s why we’re asking A licence holders and above to tell us about great service you've received from another BPA member... to tell us if you've spotted a BPA Star ! The closing date for receipt of completed nomination form (download BPA Form 296 using the Search Forms box) is Wednesday 1 November 2017 - so it's time to get star-spotting!
