The Vice President will also deputise for the President where required, including chairing and attending meetings, representing the Association at events, and producing written responses.
Lewis has been directly involved with the BPCA since 1999 and having served on the Service Committee for 10 years he was then voted onto the Executive Board in 2009.
When asked about the appointment, Lewis Jenkins said:
“Being a member of the Executive Board of the BPCA is extremely rewarding. The Board strives to improve services provided by the BPCA for its members as well as delivering benefits to the pest control industry as a whole. The appointment as Vice President adds another layer of responsibility to my role including setting budgets and an enhanced role in developing the BPCA’s Strategy. Having been in the role for a few months already, I am really enjoying this new challenge.”
