Membership and supporters
Bristol Walking Alliance. is an alliance of organisations. Any independent Bristol-based walking-interest organisation that supports the BWA manifesto can become a member of BWA.
Other organisations and individuals can become ‘supporters’ but not ‘members’.
How we operate
Monthly meetings are restricted to representatives of BWA’s member organisations, except that other individuals who support BWA’s aims may attend by invitation. Each member organisation has one vote if a decision is taken by vote.
BWA may call general meetings. These will be open to all supporters, and to members of the public who have not yet become supporters.
Communications to supporters. All supporters receive a BWA ebulletin of information updates and invitations to support campaigns.
