BCA AGM 11th June 2023 - details

BCA Chair

Details of the BCA AGM to be held on 11th June by Zoom can be found at this link:

Of particular note is the need for volunteers as outlined in my previous post https://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?threads/state-of-play-in-the-bca.30589/ but now becoming clearer as positions become/are vacant. It is not just the key positions where we are seeking to fill but also volunteers who are willing to help "behind the scenes" so to speak and maybe reluctant to take on a front facing position; please make contact if you are interested.

Could we get the minutes from the 2022 AGM? They're still not available on the website.

The constitution says they have to be made available to the membership no later than 6 weeks after the meeting. I seem to remember a similar thing happening for the 2021 AGM minutes....

Aware that you’re stepping down from IT this year (thanks for all your hard work over the last few years - and particularly for supporting me!).

Is the view that uploading minutes to the website will continue to be the responsibility of the IT manager? A little surprised it falls under your remit at all to be honest.


Well in September 2021 I told the executive I needed to step down to focus on my PhD but would stay in post until a replacement could be found. At some point I will have to step away more forcefully, but it would be a shame to have to do. Very happy to have helped, thank you souch for all the excellent work you did in Y&D!

I've now given Mary (paid staff) instructions on how to upload documents, so I think this job has been handed over. I'd better check that we are both on the same page though!
