The BMC is seeking two to three volunteers from the membership to join the Implementation Group overseeing the roll-out of the recommendations of the BMC’s Organisational Review.
In April 2017 the BMC commissioned a QC led independent review of the governance, structure and management of the organisation. Phase I culminated at the BMC AGM 2018, in acceptance of the recommendations, in the spirit of the ORG’s work, and the adoption of a modern set of Articles of Association defining a new governance structure for the organisation, aligned with contemporary best practice in sports governance.

The BMC is now addressing Phase II of the Review, namely the development and implementation of around 40 wide ranging, and interlinking, recommendations. The overall organisational change it recommends is likely to take several years to fully complete. The recommendations include a review of the organisational strategy and development of key policies, structures for managing competition climbing, the BMC’s presence in Wales, commercial activities, new strategies for supporting and engaging members, key partner organisations, volunteers, indoor climbers, hill walkers, and clubs, alongside a range of HR and internal management improvements.
