Climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are changing. We need your help to shape the future of your BMC.
Did you know that more people now go climbing, hill walking and mountaineering than play football? We’re now the fifth biggest participation sport in the UK: with almost 2 million hill walkers, around 100,000 outdoor climbers and 170,000 indoor climbers.
Your BMC is growing too.
As the world moves forward, the BMC needs to evolve to move with it – to stay relevant and speak for everyone with one clear voice.
The latest step in our evolution was an organisational review last year, when an independent panel looked at how well our organisation and decision-making currently worked. They came back with a whole range of recommendations on how we should adapt to continue to meet the needs of over 80,000 members.
Now it’s your turn
This year, we’re asking members to vote on some important changes to our constitution. These changes stem from the organisational review, and have been developed by the BMC’s National Council in consultation with membership as the best way forward for the organisation.
You can vote on two options:
Option A (the formal recommendation of the BMC’s National Council) or Option B (developed by a group of BMC members as their alternative).
Every vote really does count. In order for a new constitution to be formally agreed, 75% of the votes must be cast in favour of either Options A or B.
The BMC has made its formal recommendation for Option A, and the final decision is up to you – our members.
Have your say – vote today and help set your BMC on the right course for the future.
