Nominate a volunteer for a 2020 BMC award

Posted by Tony Ryan on 29/10/2019

BMC members are invited to nominate a volunteer for an award recognising the vital contribution volunteers make to the work of the BMC.

The following three awards will be presented at the Presidents Dinner during the 2020 BMC AGM weekend at Plas y Brenin on the 13 June 2020:

How to make a nomination

All BMC members are welcome to nominate a volunteer for any or all of the awards by completing the following online form, providing as much detail as possible:

NOMINATE A VOLUNTEER FOR AN AWARD NOW

The deadline for all nominations is Tuesday 31 March 2020.

Please note that wherever possible a nomination should be supported by a BMC committee or local area.

The nominations will be assessed by a small working group comprising current BMC president Lynn Robinson and deputy president Andy Syme, former BMC president Rehan Siddiqui, BMC volunteer development officer Jane Thompson and BMC youth and equity officer James McHaffie.

BMC Awards – Key points to consider

When completing a form to nominate someone for a BMC Volunteer Award there are a few points that you may wish to consider.

  • The forms are assessed anonymously, i.e. the award panel isn’t provided with the names of the nominees. Therefore don’t assume that the panel will know the individual and know what value they have provided to the BMC and to mountaineering.
  • Include as much information about the nominee as you can, these awards are popular and you need to ensure that you have provided as much information as you can for the award panel to assess.
  • Provide details about any committees they have served on, events they have been involved in or projects they have worked on. Try to include dates with these and the roles that they held.
  • Think about the achievements they have had in both their volunteering with the BMC and within the wider mountaineering community - remember that ACT (Access & Conservation Trust), MHT (Mountain Heritage Trust), and the National Huts are all part of the wider BMC family, and affiliated-clubs are also an integral part of the BMC community.
  • If the nominee has worked closely with a member or members of BMC staff then include that within the application.
  • Ensure that the nominee is a current member of the BMC and that the proposer and seconder are also current members.

NOMINATE A VOLUNTEER FOR AN AWARD NOW

If for any reason you choose to withdraw your nomination, and for all other queries please contact BMC volunteer development officer Jane Thompson before the nomination deadline of Tuesday 31 March 2020.
