Volunteer opportunities in your BMC Area

Posted by Tony Ryan on 01/12/2021

Would you like to get more involved in the work of the BMC? We have a number of Area volunteer roles available, and are looking for enthusiastic members to take them on.

Area volunteers undertake vital roles in the democratic structure of the BMC and the work we do on behalf of members and the wider climbing, hill walking and mountaineering community. Each of the ten BMC Areas (eight in England, two in Wales) holds an Area AGM, at which elections for a range of volunteer roles are held. Following the round of Area AGMs held in October, there are still some unfilled Area volunteer roles:
