The independent BMC Organisational Report was released at Kendal Mountain Festival. It is now available to download and consultation is open until 22 December.
The report was launched at Kendal in November
On Saturday 18 November, 150 people from the outdoor trade, media and BMC membership packed into the Eden Brewery Bar at Kendal Town Hall. They were here for two reasons: to hear about the return of our award-winning campaign Mend Our Mountains and to discover the findings of the independent BMC Organisational Review.
The BMC’s acting president Nick Kurth led the introductions by thanking everyone for coming and especially thanking all responsible for the hard work that’s gone on behind the scenes over the last year. BMC hill walking officer Carey Davies revealed the return of Mend Our Mountains and explained how the campaign is raising its sights to Make One Million for a range of vital path repair projects within Britain’s entire family of 15 National Parks.
Ray Wigglesworth QC, the chair of the Organisational Review Group, then took the stage and announced their findings. A one-page summary was handed out to the crowd, featuring key recommendations for changes to the structure, governance and strategy of the BMC. Ray and the team went through them thoroughly, making sure each point was fully understood, and described how the new structure works up from the members to the top level, placing greater weight with the members.

SURVEY: now it's your turn to give feedback on the recommendations
The review group has made various recommendations, but it is your feedback that will help make them reality. We are asking all BMC members to read the report and send us your feedback through an online survey. The survey has now been launched and emailed to members. It has been run by independent market research company 2020 Research, and members can express support or opposition to recommendations, and comment on specific sections. All BMC members have been emailed a link to the survey or you can use this link:
The online consultation period is open until 22 December, then the final recommendations will go to a vote at the BMC AGM in April 2018.
