An overview of BMC people

Posted by Tony Ryan on 01/07/2018
The BMC office in West Didsbury, Manchester.

The BMC is the national representative body that champions the interests of climbers, hill walkers, mountaineers and ski mountaineers in England and Wales; we are also recognised by government as the national governing body for competition climbing. Lots of people are vital to the BMC’s ability carry out its functions.

Our Staff and Volunteers

The work of the BMC is carried out and co-ordinated by over 30 members of staff supported by hundreds of volunteers. This vital partnership between staff and volunteers enables the BMC to work on behalf of its members and for the benefit of the entire mountaineering community.

Our Management Structure

The BMC is managed by a combination of the Board of Directors, National Council, the Finance & Audit Committee and senior staff. The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the strategic direction and operational management. National Council is made up of representatives from the BMC Areas, Specialist Committees and members of the Board of Directors, provides an intermediary forum between the Board and the members, and represents the interests of the members to the Board. The Finance & Audit Committee supports the CEO and Financial Controller and advises the Board on financial matters. The CEO is responsible for the day-to-day management of the BMC office.
