British Furniture Manufacturers has appointed a new membership engagement manager with a wealth of experience in a trade body environment.
Joanna Privett joins the BFM team on a number of new projects, as well as providing a first point of contact for members’ communications with the association.
With more than seven years’ experience in membership support at the British Parking Association, Joanna brings in-depth knowledge and skill in benefits and services for trade body members.
Her work with the BFM includes working on the delivery of the trade body’s brand-new Furniture Component Expo in 2024, which will link furniture manufacturers with the components sector in a one-stop shop format.
Taking place at the Telford International Centre, the date for the business-to-business event has been set for the 24-25th April.
Joanna is also supporting the BFM’s new Approved Retailer category, which was launched earlier this year and welcomes retailers into membership for the first time.
Joanna said: “It’s been a busy start to the role and it’s exciting to be working as part of the team on building links with members, welcoming new joiners to the association and supporting the events and initiatives we have planned.”
