Type of event
Area Meeting
The BMC Yorkshire Area Meeting will be held in the Garden Room at The Wheatley Arms in Ben Rhydding on Monday 5 September 2016, starting at 7.30pm.

Come along to our regular gathering of Yorkshire climbers and walkers, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC. The evening includes a discussion of local and national issues, a bar and food, so it should be a good night out.

BMC 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 Executive Committee member Deirdre Collier (who is also the area secretary) 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

All are welcome. Food will be provided.

The venue is very convenient for the local railway station on the Leeds to Ilkley line.
