Election Procedures

Elections will be conducted at the Area AGMs listed above, and if you wish to stand for election for a role in your BMC Area, you should attend your Area AGM. You don’t need a proposer or seconder to stand for election to an Area volunteer, and could stand on the night without prior notification, but we would prefer anyone who does intend to stand to let us know in advance.

Interested?

If you are interested in any of the vacant volunteer roles, and would like to find out more, please contact BMC Local Areas Co-ordinator, Tony Ryan by emailing tony@thebmc.co.uk.

 


We want to say a big thanks to every BMC member who continues to support us through the Coronavirus crisis.

From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t do it without you.

Did you know that we've just launched a new U27 membership offer for just £1.50 / month? And with full membership from £2.50 / month, it's never been easier to join and support our work:
