The BMC Access Management Group (AMG) is seeking several new members to help guide our Access, Conservation & Environmental Sustainability work programme and support the staff team. If you have a relevant background at a senior, policy or strategic level and would like to get involved – please read on.
The BMC has five staff members covering access, conservation and environmental matters at a local and national level across England and Wales. The AMG is a group of volunteers which provides technical support and strategic guidance to the staff, and keeps the Board and Members Council appraised about important matters of relevance to climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers. The Group is chaired by Andy Tickle (background in landscapes, planning and campaigns), and includes Ken Taylor, Ray Wood, Louise Hawson (chair of the Sustainability working group) and Barbara Jones (chair of the Conservation working group); it meets quarterly either virtually or face-to-face in Manchester, Covid-19 regulations permitting.
