An update on recent progress made by the Organisational Development Group (ODG) in its oversight of the work required to take forward organisational change within the BMC, and a request for feedback from members.

Leading on from the October ODG update, the group has made the following progress:

  • Work has begun on the National Council reconstitution, the Memorandum of Understanding between the Board of Directors and the National Council, and the proposed updates to the Articles of Association;
  • The restructuring of the Board of Directors is underway with appointment of a Chair close to being complete;
  • The proposed plan for the Strategy Review has been published; in outline it is an Interim Plan to address the BMC’s immediate priorities complete by April 2019. After this the Strategic Plan and Business Plan will be created by April 2020;
  • The work to assess options to support the BMC’s work in Wales and options for competition climbing structures are underway and both are expected to take a longer time to resolve than the other work in progress;
  • The work stream focussing on Partnerships has agreed its terms of reference and is recruiting a team of volunteers and staff who can contribute to the work in its scope; and
  • A key part of the ODG’s work is Membership Engagement, which is underway with a series of meetings with key contacts complete. The aim of this work is to increase engagement of the BMC membership in local, national and policy issues, and to develop volunteering and volunteers across the organisation.

Member feedback requested

The ODG has published a detailed update, to enable members to discuss the group’s work at the upcoming round of BMC Area Meetings (19-29 November), so that each Area’s National Council representatives can report to the next National Council meeting in December.
