BMC rebranding – engagement with clubs
Following my email of earlier this week I am writing to draw your attention to the update article as posted on the BMC website yesterday, see: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/climb-britain-update-from-the-bmc
There has been a strong reaction to the idea of rebranding the BMC and we have now announced there will be a period of discussion and feedback in advance of the next BMC National Council meeting on 17 September.
The next BMC Area Meetings take place between 1-14 September and each meeting will be attended by one or more members of our Board of Directors (I will be attending at least six) who will explain the rebranding process and take questions. Most of the dates are already established (see: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/upcoming-bmc-area-meetings) but do keep an eye out for changes and updates. It would be great if you could encourage your members to attend these meetings and contribute to the debate.
The BMC also intends to hold a meeting specifically for club officials on Tuesday 6 September at a location to be fixed once we know where the demand is coming from. If your club would like to come along to such a meeting I would be very grateful if you could drop me a line to confirm the name of person who will be attending.
