An update from the Chair of the Board of Directors to all members of the British Mountaineering Council (BMC).

Following board and council approval, the following documents have been created to give members an update on the following topics:

Financial statement

This document is an update from the Chair of the Board of Directors to all members of the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) in advance of the final audited financial figures for 2023.
The final figures for the year 2023 will only be confirmed when the accounts are finalised and the audit is complete, which is anticipated to be before 11 May.
On 4 March 2024, the Board of Directors of the BMC agreed a very conservative budget for 2024. This was based on a flat growth trajectory for membership and was supported with feedback provided by both the FAC and Members’ Council.

GB Climbing Proposal

The purpose of the GB Climbing Proposal (Performance Departmnet and Competition Commisions) is to set out proposed changes to GB Climbing in preparation for the Los Angeles Olympic Cycle, 2028.

The proposed model aims to establish a Performance Department with clear accountability while ensuring support for grassroots development and competitions. The document suggests aligning with successful practices in other National Governing Bodies.

This document sets out the implications of separating competition activities into a separate organisation which is financially independent of the BMC.

The document highlights significant challenges and risks associated with separating competition activities from the BMC, affecting both the competition activities themselves and the core functioning of the BMC.
