Our team has successfully managed the public affairs of local, state and federal policymakers nonprofits and trade associations. Often, tipping the scale of public opinion in your favor means implementing long-term strategies that build trust with a diverse set of stakeholders who have competing interests. It’s not always easy, but the results help move communities forward in a positive direction.
BPA’s public relations services help clients get ready for P.R.O.M. We make sure that a client’s message generates movement to attract the
People, Revenue, Organizations and Media necessary to create realistic and long-lasting awareness. We specialize in generating earned media and creating owned media to connect clients with their perfect audience. This includes, but goes well beyond the standard tools of press releases and media advisories. BPA creates media worthy events to grab and keep your audience's attention.
Let’s face it, stuff happens. Sometimes when it happens, it plays out on the front page of the newspaper or all over your social media feed. BPA has experience helping national political, business and entertainment figures tame the crisis and get back to business that is better than usual.
BPA believes that clear communication can resolve most problems and to that end, we offer licensed mediation and dispute resolution services. In recent years, as court dockets grow increasingly full, many organizations are relying on mediation and dispute resolution as a faster and less expensive way to reach a mutually acceptable conclusion to conflicts.
We are the Champions.
We love David's story. With one sling shot, five smooth stones and a good dose of chutzpah, he taught us why and when to bet on the underdog.
We Champion Davids in a World of Goliaths.
With Courage, Clarity and Competence we are Your Clear Voice in a Crowded Market.
This is where we tell you what a whiz-bang team we are. We soar beyond client expectations because we have assembled a team of communication and media professionals who are not only great at their craft, but who also love their craft.

The Significance of a Symbol
The origin of our logo is quite easy to explain. A friend once referred to dragonflies as “butterflies with attitude.” We immediately fell in love. Well, as much as one can fall in love with a phrase... We fell in love.
When debating logos, we toyed with a number of images until one day we realized, it was right under our noses. Or we should say, it was pinned to our blouses. You see, after hearing the phrase “butterflies with attitude,” we had abandoned all other pins and broaches to almost exclusively wear exotic, simple, playful and funky dragonflies.
Like butterflies, we are lighthearted, colorful and creative free spirits. But don’t mistake our free spirit for lack of drive. We have an attitude of dedication that says, “Good is not nearly enough.” We have an attitude of determination that drives us to do better than best. We have an attitude of dependability that allows our clients to trust our word and our work.
The dragonfly or butterfly with attitude embodies our spirit. It underscores everything about the way we approach work. It explains why we soar beyond client expectations.
