Neither of the "?" links for non-cavers in joint memberships on the DIMs page of individual membership fees works.
Old ... but not old enough to know any better

It's a WIP the IT working group are churning through the site testing and fixing as they go.  Drop them a line at the IT address for the BCA.

 Dear Members,

The face of the BCA has now started to change with a brand new website, that looks slick, modern and informative, and one that as a National Body, we should be proud of. I really hope as a member of the BCA, you will take the time to take a look at the new website https://british-caving.org.uk/ and give any feedback to Ari (the working party convenor, whose email address is IT@British-caving.org.uk).

I would also encourage people to send caving news etc to the P&I working group (email address is publications@british-caving.org.uk) so that it can be put onto the website, to keep it current and interesting but also show the wider community the great things cavers are doing.

A massive thanks has to be extended to the IT working group for achieving this (both past and present), as I know they have been very busy trying to bring us this new website, as well as a new membership database and an electronic AGM (a first for the BCA) with all its associated complications.

Fantastic, a great achievement with a big thanks!

Phil Rowsell
Acting BCA Chair

Looks good. I know how much work setting up a replacement web site involves. There are a some dead links in the Equipment & Techniques page to two papers on Chloride stress corrosion cracking of stainless steel. https://british-caving.org.uk/about-bca/committees-groups/equipment-techniques-committee/

 I thought I knew my way round the BCA web page but I have lost the who's who list  :'( as I know people have moved round.

Not sure how to contact the web boffins so trying here  :-\

I think the main Contact page needs updating too. 

Could you put a link to the page on here please  ;D

Here's the list of who's who at the BCA, found by using the menu: About BCA > BCA Council

It looks like the tables don't format very nicely on mobile, which I'll add to the to-do list :)
