Upcoming BMC area meeting dates

Come along to the next meeting in your area, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC.

The role of area meetings is to facilitate democratic debate between BMC members and reach consensus and decisions on local and national issues.  Area meetings are the main forum for members to contribute to discussions about climbing, hill walking and mountaineering issues in their area.  To many people they are the ‘public face’ of the BMC where members wishing to get more involved can express opinions, influence policy and learn about wider aspects of the BMC’s work.

They are also good social occasions, often taking place in pub meeting rooms, with some free food laid on (you have to buy your own drinks!) and a speaker talking about a recent expedition to a far flung corner of the world or a trip to the latest rock climbing hotspot.
