Upcoming BMC area meeting dates

Come along to the next meeting in your area, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC.

The role of area meetings is to facilitate democratic debate between BMC members and reach consensus and decisions on local and national issues.  Area meetings are the main forum for members to contribute to discussions about climbing, hill walking and mountaineering issues in their area.  To many people they are the 'public face' of the BMC where members wishing to get more involved can express opinions, influence policy and learn about wider aspects of the BMC’s work.

They are also good social occasions, often taking place in pub meeting rooms, with some free food laid on (you have to buy your own drinks!) and a speaker talking about a recent expedition to a far flung corner of the world or a trip to the latest rock climbing hotspot.

Have your say: how the BMC National Council works

The BMC is a democracy. As such, the opinions of members on all kinds of things – to bolt or not to bolt, whether dry tooling is acceptable on established rock climbs, whether the BMC should change its name, how to connect with hill walkers and new climbers – are taken very seriously. Not only can you have your say at local area meetings, you can also vote for the volunteers who debate local issues and actively shape BMC policies at a national level. Here’s how it all works.
