Are you passionate about the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers? Do you want to volunteer to share your knowledge & experience whilst working with great people? If you have commitment, energy and enthusiasm, now is your chance to give something back.
At the 2022 BMC AGM, taking place on Wednesday 18 May 2022 at 7pm, elections will be held for a number of existing roles on Members' Council and the BMC Board of Directors.
The Members' Council (Council) is the representative body for the BMC’s members. At the AGM last year it adopted new terms of reference and three new Nationally Elected Councillors were elected. The terms of reference can be found here, and a brief introduction to the Council can be found below.

This is an exciting time for the BMC as it seeks to expand member engagement and increase grassroots representation, so please consider volunteering.
The BMC Board of Directors
We are seeking two energetic and forward-thinking Directors to join our Board (voluntary positions).
To balance the composition and skills of our Board, the BMC is now inviting applications for two Directors from its membership during a period when the organisation is reasserting its role as a body representing mountaineers (hill walkers, rock climbers, mountaineers and indoor climbers) whilst rapidly developing its role as the National Governing Body for Competition Climbing.
These positions will appeal to those who recognise the well-being benefits of active participation in outdoor activities and who share our care and concern for the natural environment. They provide an opportunity to gain satisfaction from contributing to decision-making and scrutiny at a time when the BMC is seeking to grow its membership and enhance its services whilst championing the environment in the context of increased outdoor participation.
The Board aspires to be both diverse and inclusive; encompassing a wide range of perspectives, approaches and experiences which we believe are essential to driving further innovation, challenge and creativity within our sporting environment – mountain, crag and indoor.
The Board provides strategic direction, supports operational management and helps promote our activities across England and Wales in addition to governing competition climbing within the whole of the UK. The successful candidate will be part of a team expected to analyse plans and strategic options in a constructive way and help lead the future development of the BMC.
