AGM Vote Results

The results of the BCA vote following the AGM are now available. A huge thank you must be given to all the members that made the effort to engage and took the trouble to vote. Secondly another huge thank you should be extended to the IT group for pulling off a remarkable number of achievements with our first virtual AGM, the on-line voting system and now the results.

We think you will agree that holding the AGM and elections has been a significant achievement given the backdrop and effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, which threatened to disrupt our year completely but the resilience of cavers shone through and achieved a modicum of success with over 500 members voting.

Our thanks once again, and we hope similar successes will continue to move the BCA forward.

Phil Rowsell, Russell Myers and Howard Jones
The BCA Executive
