After all, an organization with so much experience
planning events is bound to excel in uniting bakers
and suppliers in all facets, especially education.
"The thread of connection is in everything we
do," Mr. Brown said. "If we had just one thing,
BEMA would be about connecting, and our education is built with that thread." Bakers aren't required
for BEMA-U to work, but they certainly enhance it.

The BEMA-U
education portfolio
Since 2015, BEMA has been developing and refining its BEMA-U program to
bring the best possible education offerings to member companies and the baking industry at large. In 2018, the association offers a full portfolio of leadership
and training that range from cohort-style
learning - where small groups meet
three times over the course of a year -
to traditional workshops, all of which are
built on the Insights Discovery format.
