BCA Council

The BCA has a National Council comprising 29 positions which are democratically elected by membership and have a vote on Council:

  • The Officers
  • Group/Club and Individual representatives
  • Regional Council and Constituent Body representatives

There are also numerous additional (non-voting) positions which are appointed annually by BCA Council to serve specific roles/functions.

With the exception of a few key administrative positions, all are staffed by passionate volunteers.

Volunteer to help shape the future of British Caving!

BCA Council meet at least three times per year to conduct the business of the BCA between General Meetings, to progress all of the BCA’s key objectives and facets, react to and explore new ways to benefit caving in the UK and better serve our members.

Election and operation of the BCA Council is set out in our Constitution.
