Inaugural BTCA Zoom credit meeting



TABMA conducted the inaugural BTCA Zoom credit meeting on Thursday 3rd September. Almost 20 TABMA & BTCA members participated. There was lively discussion and exchange of information about debtors of common interest and exposure. Members also discussed general items including credit insurance, preferential payments and the unexpected stability in overdue debtors given the impact of COVID.


Beverly Bullivant Gunlake Concrete/Quarries Credit Manager – “Informative and definitely worthwhile. I encourage all members to attend the next one to judge for yourself.  The more input from members, the more value it will provide.”


Martin Giunta Royal Plywood General Manager – “It was great to see all members who attended our Zoom meeting on Thursday 3rd September 2020, to discuss debtors in detail. It is particularly important that the more members will mean more information available, as there is so much uncertainty surrounding the industry in the short & long term. This makes it more critical for meetings to be held on the planned regular basis of every 2 months, with as many members as possible”


BTCA intends to hold the Zoom meeting on the third Thursday of every second month commencing at 10:00 am. Like the first meeting, we expect it to go no longer than two hours. If you want to benefit from the exchange of information, then please diarise this date for the last meeting of 2020 – Thursday 19th November.
