The BMC Peak Area Meeting will be held at The Maynard in Grindleford on Wednesday 14 September 2016, starting at 7.30pm.
Come along to our next gathering of Peak climbers and walkers, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC.
The area meetings are run by volunteers and are your chance to join in with debate and influence decisions about what happens in your area as well as the rest of the country.
Consultation on rebranding
The meeting will include a consultation on our recent rebranding announcement, and will be attended by BMC president Rehan Siddiqui, vice-presidents Emma Flaherty and Rupert Davies, and CEO Dave Turnbull, who will explain the background to the rebranding proposal in detail; this will be followed by an open discussion and Q&A session.
The views from the meeting will be fed back via Area Representatives to the National Council meeting on 17 September; National Council will then decide how to proceed based on the views and feedback received. Members are encouraged to attend the meeting to contribute to the debate. Read BMC and Climb Britain: next steps
Guest speaker is Nigel Vardy, aka Mr Frostbite
In 1999 Nigel suffered severe frostbite in temperatures of -60°C on Denali in Alaska. It cost him his fingers, nose and all of his toes. An inspiring tale of resilience, recovery and adversity against the odds, Nigel’s injuries haven’t stopped him rising to life’s daily challenges and going on to climb some of the world’s toughest and most challenging mountains.
All are welcome; food will be provided.
