|BMF Centenary Celebrations|
|Thursday, 17 January 2013 00:00|
The British Marine Federation, established in 1913 originally as the Boat and Yacht Builders’ and Proprietors and Allied Trades Protection Association, is this year celebrating 100 years supporting the marine industry.
Its original aims included promotion and protection of its members and the promotion or opposing of legislation, which today still sits within the heart of the BMF’s mission along with delivering high quality services, benefits and commercial activities.
Ten decades has seen the BMF work diligently to support the marine industry from making amends to Parliamentary bills and building relationships with the Admiralty and Ministry of Shipping to developing national apprenticeship schemes. Devising legal contracts to improve boatbuilding trade standards, purchasing boat shows and creating campaigns for foot and mouth and red diesel are also within the timeline of BMF notable events. Today the Federation has over 1500 members.
