BACD takes on Eventia admin role

Eventia has contracted the BACD to provide its association management and administration service from 1 April. The move follows the announcement last December that the associations planned to merge, dependent upon backing from both memberships. Eventia’s office and administration systems will be located at the BACD office in central Birmingham, but Eventia executive director Izania Downie will continue to work from London. BACD’s executive team, comprising Tony Rogers, Tracy Johnson, Sarah Malkin and Julia Lewis will be joined by Harpreet Tumber, who has been recruited to the position of membership services executive. She will provide recruitment, communications and support activities for Eventia members. “We are very pleased to formalise the relationship with BACD in this way,” said Downie, “Eventia is a rapidly growing organisation and tapping into the dedicated wider resource and experience afforded by the BACD team can only help to expedite our growth and development. We also very much welcome the opportunities to establish productive partnerships between our respective memberships for their mutual benefit.” Eventia chairman Rob Allen added: “The management contract between Eventia and the BACD is quite separate from the discussions already announced of a potential merger between the two organisations. However, this new relationship clearly presents great practical opportunities to develop the synergies that already exist before any actual merger is formalised.”
