BRMC

Brand and communications team update

It is almost six months since the Brand and communications team was officially formed and felt now was a good time for a brief update on our progress, while sharing details of two ways below where you can help and have an input to the direction of travel.

It has been a busy period with many projects being taken forward, some of which have already delivered positive outcomes and others that are in their early stages of development.

The launch of the BMMC Club Ambassadors scheme has been very successful with many leading figures and opinion formers accepting our invitations to help raise awareness of the commitment of our members and reward your hard work publicly.

Among the leading names is BTCC and ITV4 commentator Paul O’Neill whose praise for the #OrangeFamily live on ITV4 during the Donington Park rounds of BTCC led to over 100 enquiries for taster days via out website within 48 hours! Paul also recently attended the first on scene training at the Oulton Park rounds of BTCC, leading to yet more positive social media promotion of our work and professionalism.

We’ve also run a very successful competition to invite our members to submit designs for a new British Rally Marshals Club (BRMC) logo and the final shortlist was presented to the BRMC committee to select the final preferred design.

This is now being developed for final approval in the Autumn ahead of the reveal of the new logo and its application across all its uses in January 2020.

We’ve also organised four factory visits this summer to Mercedes AMG F1 team in Brackley, two if which have already taken place, and two visits are planned to the ProDrive factory later this year.

How can you get involved?

We have one specific opportunity we are looking for your help with as outlined below but if you have a desire to offer your services to the Brand and Communications team in any other capacity we would love to hear from you. Just contact comms@marshals.co.uk and outline your interests.

Focus group recruitment

Do you want to influence the direction of travel for the BMMC? Do you want to help the Brand and Communications team to develop innovative new ideas for members?

Well now you can!

At our May BMMC Council meeting approval was given for us to create a focus group to help us develop new ideas and give feedback on proposals before they are rolled out to the full membership.

The role

You will be asked to act as a sounding board of members for the Brand and Communications Team and wider Council via a dedicated panel created to test new ideas and initiatives.

What do we want?

We are looking for 2/3 members from each region, possibly with a background or interest in marketing and communications, to become members of our BMMC Focus group. 

The panel is not intended to be a forum for creating their own ideas, to raise non-related concerns or to circumnavigate existing structures eg Regional Committees, other routes exits for that. 

If this is something you would like to help out with please email us at comms@marshals.co.uk with your name, region and BMMC membership No.
