Who is who?

The core of our club consists of different people with a variety of (professional) knowledge, both in the field of meteorology (both weather forecasting and climatology), informatics/software, electronics and of course technical service.

Our club works democratically: decisions of the BMCB are made by majority vote.

The members of our club live all over Belgium: French-speakers, Dutch-speakers, German-speakers and English-speakers have found their way to the BMCB... After all, the weather does not respect language borders either.
