Do you think the problem might be geographical in that the Mendips has a very large membership that lives nowhere near caves! I.e. the rest of the South of England. For me to get to my club takes at least 2 1/2 hours and it's the nearest area to me. I assume that other areas have a much more local membership and so people are more likely to attend meetings.
You're on a roll today You may well be right, but I hope you are wrong about change. It's got to happen one day, one way or another...
Is there anything in the BCA constitution that means a club has to be a member of the regional council where they are based, rather than the one that most aligns with their interests?
A club can be a member of multiple regional councils. The regional councils are (I think) free to refuse membership.

*Disclaimer - I am not a southern caver despite having recently moved to Exeter, I assume there's a baptism or something I have to do down Swildons while my SRT kit is burnt Out of interest would electing a regional representative (i.e. the head of cscc etc) direct to BCA be an acceptable notion? (was thinking this could leave the 'civil service' side of the cscc intact while getting people to actually vote on the representative side) Or would you change something else?
Instead of (or as well as ) grumbling on here, why not leave the CSCC a review on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CouncilOfSouthernCavingClubs/reviews/
