Welcome

BMC organisational values – have your say

The BMC is producing a new 5 year strategic plan and part of this involves defining the key values that underpin our work for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers. Earlier this year the BMC staff developed some initial suggestions and these were fine-tuned at an open forum session – Fit for the future - a review of the BMC’s vision, mission & core values – in Buxton on 31 March.  We’re now seeking feedback from all BMC members. Do please take a few minutes to complete this simple survey and let us know your thoughts.

Best Regards

Dave Turnbull
