BBA Member Update May 2018

New committee welcome letter

Date 2nd May 2018

Dear Members and Spouses,

I would like to first thank you all for the great honour to act as your chairman for the British Business Association for the next 12 months and to pass on our thanks to the previous chairman Gary Hawkins and committee for all their hard work and dedication.

Having joined close to four years ago, when I arrived in KSA with Rachel and the family, I have seen firsthand the great networking and business opportunities that we have within us as a membership as we look forward to the potential for even greater collaboration going forward.

With the changes in Saudi Arabia going on around us allied to the United Kingdom’s deep and long-term commitment to Saudi Arabia, these are exciting times to be here.

The new committee members meet tonight and we are all keen to drive up the calendar of events, promotions and other benefits going forward and will let you know the arrangements in due course.

There will be a continued focus on special interest groups for all major UK – KSA trades, a continued focus on Saudi Aramco and a constant feed of information from our colleagues and friends in the British Trade Office to you all.

As well as these activities, we will also be looking to add in some social events and fun theme nights to allow our spouses the chance to let the families meet in a less formal manner than the business geared events.

Lastly, thank you for all your interest in the BBA over the years and from myself and the committee may we wish you all Ramadan Kareem in advance and we hope to see you all soon.

Yours Sincerely,

David Burck
