BMC Organisational Review: latest developments
National Council has established a working group to develop proposals for implementing the review group’s recommendations, and these proposals will be published prior to the meeting, which will offer an important opportunity for members to provide feedback and influence the final version of the proposals, to be presented to members for approval at the BMC AGM on 16 June.
All are welcome; food will be provided by the BMC.
See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting
