BSGA has a new President
Murray Crompton, Managing Director of Sign 2000, is the new President of the BSGA. He was appointed to take on the role for the next two years at the Association’s recent AGM.
In handing over the reins to Murray, David Dyke, who has served as President for the past two years, thanked everyone at the BSGA for the great work done during this period. He said; “It has resulted in a huge increase in the Association’s profile and standing in the sign industry.”
He continued: “Recent tragic events have bought attention to our work to raise the need for even higher standards and quality within the industry and the Association now has the right tools in place to help members navigate their way safely through what can only be a described as a fundamental change in legislation and standards that demand an appropriate and speedy response from sign companies.”
Murray thanked David for his achievements during his term of office, which have helped to change attitudes as to the realities of what the new legislation and standards will mean to those sign companies that wish to offer a professional, competent and qualified service to their clients.
“The work won’t stop,” he said, adding: “Signmakers have increasing responsibilities to their clients and in the future there will be an even greater need for a trade association that they can rely on to ensure that they are fully informed about what is required of them.
“The BSGA is the only trade organisation dedicated to serving the sign industry and we are determined to see that our members are better prepared than their competitors to meet the challenges ahead.”
The AGM also saw the following Council Members being re-elected for a further two-year term:
Haylee Benton of Trade Signs Fabrications
Edward Butterfield of Butterfield Signs
Steve Croucher of Arrow Plastics
Mike Hall of Mike Hall Technical Services:
Rod Hill of Morgans Consult
