BMC George Band Award – Ian Smith

Ian Smith

One of the recipients of the award this year is CC Ex-President and Guidebook Editor Ian Smith. The award is in recognition of his considerable contribution to the BMC and Guidebooks. Congratulations to Ian, on receiving the deserved recognition.

We are pleased to announce that Ian Smith, guidebook writer, Editor, and past President is to be presented with The George Band Award for Exceptional Voluntary Contribution to Mountaineering, for his significant role in the BMC’s work over an extended period of time. Those that know Ian will acknowledge his unstinting support for the CC, in particular for its guidebook work, but may not be aware that his expertise has also supported the BMC for many years.

The award was established in 2010, and Ian joins a select group of past recipients. The CC is delighted that Ian is to receive this prestigious award.

Vic Odell – Hon. Secretary
