The BMC's Access & Conservation work is co-ordinated by the Access Management Group (AMG), made up of highly qualified and experienced volunteers with particular areas of expertise.
How does it work?
The purpose of the AMG is to oversee the BMC’s access and conservation work programme and provide support and guidance on issues of national and/or significant importance to the BMC Access & Conservation Officers, Regional Access Reps and internal Committees including National Council and the Area Committees.
The Access Management Group (AMG) sets the overall direction for the BMC's access, & conservation & environment work. In broad terms it appoints and oversees the work of a number of sub-groups (set out below) to undertake specific or standing tasks; it controls this activity using task briefs.
The AMG comprises BMC members who volunteer their relevant skills and experience to promote cliff and mountain conservation and encourage access improvements for the common good of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers across England and Wales.
In 2012, 4 BMC sub-groups were created to look in detail at specific access and conservation work areas. These groups include;
Conservation & Climbing Working Group
Group Use Working Group
Landscape Working Group
Quarries Working Group
Membership of these groups has been drawn from across BMC specialist committees, the wider membership as well as external specialists.
