BMC National Council anniversaries

Charles Clarke presents Dave Turnbull with jam

The December meeting of the BMC National Council, the body that decides the policies of the organisation, coincided with a couple of important anniversaries.

The meeting was held on 2 December at Plas y Brenin in North Wales.  Every year, at the December meeting of the National Council, the BMC specialist committees report what they've done over the year and what they plan to do in the forthcoming year - nothing unusual in that you may think.

However, exactly ten years before, on 2 December 1996 our CEO, Dave Turnbull, started work at the BMC as an Access Officer.  To mark the occasion BMC President Charles Clarke presented Dave with some of his wife's delicious homemade jam. 

Those with an eye on BMC history will also be aware that 2 December was the date of the inaugural meeting of the BMC - and that was way back in 1944!
