Work Party Information


What is a BMC Work Party?

A BMC Work Party is a designated day (typically a Saturday) that any Active BMC Member can attend to perform a variety of tasks to prepare for an event, or maintain the grounds, facilities, or equipment. Your time at a Work Party goes towards your required Member hours, so be sure to “Sign In” and Sign Out” on that day’s Work party Sheet. Every event can use help, and 8 of your 26 required hours must be acquired by working at an event. Work Parties are hosted by an Event Promoter, Executive Board Member or other Special Task Leader.
