BCA Team awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the category of Best COVID-19 Support (Small Organisation)

We are thrilled to share with you that at last night’s Memcom Membership Excellence Awards, the BCA Team was awarded Highly Commended in the category of Best COVID-19 Support (Small Organisation).

This award is in recognition of the outstanding support and direction the team demonstrated in the face of a global pandemic. We worked hard to understand the changing needs of our members, creating resources and adapting services to support them during the crisis and the lasting effects beyond it.

Our driver was to make life as easy as possible for members, making it straightforward for them to prioritise safety and protect their livelihoods.

As a result, member insurance premiums were reduced for 2021 when all other similar professions had theirs increased. This enabled us to continue providing essential services, but also pass significant cost savings on to members at a pivotal for them time when incomes were seriously reduced.


BCA President, Catherine Quinn said: “I’m delighted that the hard work of the BCA Team during COVID-19 has been recognised with a Highly Commended from the Memcom judges. Whilst this award reflected our work during a specific period of time, we are proud to continue our commitment to our members, transforming the organisation to reflect member needs through our strategic repositioning project“.
