BMC Members' Council

Members' Council acts as a representative body of the members, consulting with and constructively challenging the Board of Directors, and holding the Board to account on behalf of the members.

It represents the interests of the members to the Board, and provides an intermediary forum between the Board and the members, being consulted upon decisions by the Board in relation to membership and ensuring effective communications between the Board and the members.

Its voting membership comprises locally and nationally elected representatives, and appointed representatives of specific areas or groups. Specialist Committee chairs and members of the Board of Directors can attend as observers, along with representatives from partner organisations who work closely with the BMC.

The current voting members and observers are:

Have your say: how the BMC National Council works

The BMC is a democracy. As such, the opinions of members on all kinds of things – to bolt or not to bolt, whether dry tooling is acceptable on established rock climbs, whether the BMC should change its name, how to connect with hill walkers and new climbers – are taken very seriously. Not only can you have your say at local area meetings, you can also vote for the volunteers who debate local issues and actively shape BMC policies at a national level. Here’s how it all works.
