How Did We Begin?

In early 2005 two local entrepreneurs in the Durham Region — Chuck Trumpower and Mike Hurley joined forces to research what they hoped would be a more effective networking concept. Frustrated with the product offerings, scheduling and competition inherent in many current networking groups, their goal was to create something that offered:

  • Category exclusivity
  • Move convenient meeting times
  • A more casual approach to referring business

… and most importantly, an environment that stimulated better quality leads!

And so BPA opened its first chapter in Oshawa in March of 2005. Additional chapters in Whitby and Ajax quickly followed.

BPA looks forward to continuing to offer its unique approach to reworking, to all those wishing to find better ways to grow their business.

BPA – Referrals aren’t expensive – they’re priceless!
