BMC National Council

National Council acts as a representative body of the members, consulting with and constructively challenging the Board of Directors, and holding the Board to account on behalf of the members.

It represents the interests of the members to the Board, and provides an intermediary forum between the Board and the members, being consulted upon decisions by the Board in relation to membership and ensuring effective communications between the Board and the members.

Its voting membership comprises locally elected area representatives and some members of the Board of Directors. Specialist committee chairs and other Board members can attend as observers along with representatives from organisations who work closely with the BMC. National Council meets at least four times a year.

The current voting members and observers are:

Have your say: how the BMC National Council works

The BMC is a democracy.

Not only can you have your say at local area meetings, you can also vote for the volunteers who debate local issues and actively shape BMC policies at a national level. Here’s how it all works.
