BMF and TTF strike membership deal

Published:  14 August, 2013

In a reciprocal membership promotion, the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is offering a 10% discount on its current subscription year membership to any member of the Timber Trade Federation (TTF) that joins the BMF between 1 September 2013 and 31 March 2014.

The TTF will also offer a 10% discount to any BMF member joining the TTF during the six-month promotion.

John Newcomb, BMF managing director, said: “This is the first promotional partnership between our two industry associations, and reflects the mutual respect that each has for the other. Together the two organisations provide a wide range of complementary services for companies involved in the timber supply chain who will undoubtedly benefit from dual membership.”

TTF chief executive John White added: “We are delighted to join the BMF in this promotion. There is a great deal of synergy between the two organisations and a number of our members are also members of the BMF. We hope that this promotion will demonstrate the benefits of dual membership to many others who currently belong to just one of our organisations.”

The BMF and the TTF will be writing to all members with details of the reciprocal membership offer and the benefits to their business. For further information please contact or
