About the BPCIA
The Bedford Park-Clearing Industrial Association (BPCIA) offers the opportunity to be proactive in the community and improve the area around your business. The common goal is to share information that may affect your business and the bottom line. The Association is growing due to the commitment of the members, the board of directors, and the elected officials focusing on strengthening the business climate in our area. We meet with legislators, community leaders, governmental agencies, and people who you may not conveniently meet or know but are affecting your business. We share information with our members through quarterly meetings, networking events, our website (www.bpcia.org), and our E-Newsletter.
We welcome you to learn more about the BPCIA and how we can mutually benefit from a civic and business relationship. For more information please contact us online
