BMC Local Areas

For improved member engagement, the BMC comprises ten geographical areas, eight in England and two in Wales.

BMC Areas provide a focus for local activities, and enable members to participate in the decision-making processes of the organisation.

Each BMC Area holds four to five meetings a year and these meetings act as the prime forum in which members can make their views known and have them communicated to Members' Council, which acts as the members’ representative body, consulting with and constructively challenging the BMC’s Board of Directors and holding the Board to account on behalf of members.

Each Area has a dedicated section on the BMC Local Areas site, where you can find information about area meetings and other BMC events, as well as other events likely to be of interest to BMC members:
