The BMC announces move to an annual inflation-linked increase of membership fees in 2022.
After a lengthy decision-making process, the BMC decided it will move to an annual increase of membership fees next year, in line with inflation. This increase will allow the BMC to continue to invest the same level of resources each year into the important work it does to protect the interests of members without these resources being impacted by the rising costs of doing business.
Many organisations and businesses have in place annual adjustments to fees and those who hold mobile phone contracts will likely be aware of these inflation-linked increases already. As per the BMC’s Articles, the Retail Price Index (RPI) will be used to calculate any changes to the cost of our membership subscription. Ordinarily the annual increase will be applied on 1 January. However, to give members and clubs good notice, the first increase will be delayed and will come into effect from 1 April 2022.
We believe the changes are fair and that BMC membership will still be great value for money. We would like to thank our members for their understanding and hope the advance notice of more than six months will allow ample time to plan for and accommodate the change.
