“Over the last seven years having a structure that allows BIBA to be run by members for members has contributed to our effectiveness. Having various members on our Board gives us the opportunity to understand where best to focus our resources. I am immensely grateful to those brokers who have helped steer us for the last six years and wish them continued success. We welcome Carl and the other new board members and the contributions and indeed challenges they will bring to help BIBA navigate the coming years”.
