The BMC Associate membership scheme supports a range of valuable BMC work, as well as providing our associates with a variety benefits for their organisation and staff.
The BMC values the support of Associates from a wide range of backgrounds, from retail and industry to climbing walls, outdoor centres and schools.
Through their support, Associates are investing in the wide-ranging work that the BMC undertakes for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers in England and Wales. Work on improving access to the countryside; protecting upland habitats and wildlife; promoting mountain safety, good practice and equipment standards; encouraging newcomers and young people within the sport – and much more.
