The MPA is keen to keep all relevant personnel working for its member companies fully informed of business and legal issues, training opportunities, MPA events and other industry information through its regular email newsletter Compact and general mailings. Please note that we are keen to keep as many of your employees as possible informed and that there is no limit on the number of people we can list in our database.
One principal contact – usually the Managing Director/Chief Executive – is designated as the main contact to receive any items where there is only one copy per member company (eg subscription renewal forms, AGM papers).
The principal contact, who has administration rights over the company’s directory entry on our website, will also receive a username and password for the Members Area of our website which contains useful information exclusive to MPA members. We are keen for other members of staff to have access to the Members Area too. Should you wish a member of staff to receive login details, please tick the appropriate box (and make sure you provide their email address).
Any detailed contact information is treated as confidential and will be used only by the MPA for addressing communications to named contacts. Wherever possible a personal email address and direct telephone/fax numbers are more helpful. Where electronic contact data is not available, it is assumed that all contacts can be reached via the postal address shown in the website directory entry (unless otherwise stated).
