About Welsh Council

Our annual general meeting is commonly referred to as Welsh Council to which delegates from Areas and Groups are nominated as specified in the Constitution of Ramblers Cymru. Officers of Welsh Council and members of the Welsh Council Executive Committee also attend plus guests from staff, the Board of Trustees (of Ramblers) and the membership in Wales. Sometimes, guests are invited from outside this list.

Voting Members

  • Each Area can send two voting delegates. In addition, for every 500 members, or part thereof in your Area, an extra 1 voting delegate is allocated.
  • Each formally constituted Group can send one voting delegate
  • Honorary Officers and members of the Wales Council Executive Committee
  • Affiliated organisations to Ramblers Cymru can send one voting delegate each.

Non-voting members are also welcome to attend.

At the annual general meeting, elections are held for honorary officers and for members of the Welsh Council Executive Committee (WCEC). The Welsh Council Executive Committee (WCEC) report on the previous financial year, both formally (in terms of reports) and informally (in terms of discussions). Any formal motions are discussed and voted on, and if passed, are instructions to WCEC for the future.  

The Welsh Council Executive Committee has made the decision to hold the AGM online this year via webstream. This will be held during the evening on Wednesday 23 March 2022, you can sign up to attend on Eventbrite.
