Upcoming BMC Area Meeting dates

Posted by Suzanne Jones on 11/10/2023

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

Area Meetings are run by volunteers and provide an opportunity for you to discuss issues and influence decisions affecting climbers and walkers locally and nationally, and to meet like-minded people and enjoy a sociable night out (or 'in' on Zoom). Area Meetings also provide the platform for election to a range of volunteer roles within the BMC.
