Considering organising a BMC Event? You've come to the right place. The information you need is set out below and starts with Event Approval.
The system is to ensure that BMC events are properly planned, ensuring risks are mitigated and everything reasonable is done to safeguard those involved.
It also ensures that BMC knows what events are going on under its name and who is involved, and will enable us to protect volunteers involved in organising events.
All events that are approved in this way will be BMC events and, as such, the BMC and volunteers will be covered by BMC insurance.
What type of events do we mean?
BMC events which must go through the event approval process include:
Events run by BMC Areas that have an outdoor element to them, such as crag clean-ups, walking or climbing events and festivals, etc
BMC youth meets
GB Team events
