“One of the most impressive aspects of this community is that it is in constant motion,” said Kevin McCormack, Senior Vice President and Executive Director for BELA. “We credit this to a growing set of data and resources that are supporting their program innovations and also credit the willingness of the member organizations to seek out new levels of shared practices — ranging from topically targeted working groups to research reports to pan-industry knowledge exchange through roundtables. Moreover, the global expansion into pivotal markets like South Asia, Latin America and Europe has enabled us to be more inclusive of the people and companies who have been seeking greater support for the complex work they are doing around the world. This is a community they can each rely upon.”
