The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has been shortlisted in four categories of the Memcom Excellence Awards, which celebrate innovation and creativity in UK Trade Associations and Professional Membership Organisations.

The BMF is shortlisted for Best Trade Association, Best Celebratory Event - in recognition of the inaugural Top 100 Merchants Influencers (organised in association with BMN), and the Best Use of Data – acknowledging the BMF’s ground-breaking Builders Merchants Building Index (BMBI). In addition, BMF CEO John Newcomb has been shortlisted for the Memcom CEO Leadership Award.

The awards are run by Memcom, the senior leadership network for the professional membership sector that has been helping individuals and organisations shape and achieve their goals since 2000. 

BMF CEO John Newcomb said: “We are once again honoured and delighted to see the BMF’s work acknowledged by our peers in the membership community. 

“We are constantly striving to ensure members gain value from their membership. I’m particularly pleased that the work of the whole BMF team has been recognised through our nomination as Best Trade Association.”

The Award winners will be announced on 26 September at a ceremony at the Hilton Bankside in London.
