For the third year running, the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has been shortlisted in multiple categories in the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Best Practice Awards.

The BMF are nominated in the Member Engagement category. While the Federation’s Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) has been shortlisted for the Commercial Initiative Award.

BMF Managing Director, John Newcomb said: “It is a remarkable achievement to be shortlisted for eight TAF Awards in a three year period. We have also gone on to win two of these highly contested Awards and it would be the icing on the cake if we could do so again this year.”

As ‘the trade association for trade associations’ TAF represents over 300 trade bodies in the UK. They are supported by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which is a longstanding member of the independent judging panel.

Linda Cavender, TAF Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Awards offer TAF members an excellent opportunity to showcase their organisation, its expertise and recent achievements.”

The winners will be announced at the awards evening in London on 12 July.
