|The Role of BAM|
The British Association of Monaco provides a focus as a useful and lively part of the Anglophone community around Monaco and the surrounding areas. The Association arranges regular monthly events, where members can meet other English speakers.
Friday Friendship Club is held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month and enables members and friends to 'drop in' and socialize while enjoying tea and cakes.
Other events, illustrated talks, dinners, guided tours and museum visits are organised throughout the year. BAM celebrates the Queen's Birthday each year in June, which is the only official British event in Monaco.
Through its Community Support Team, the Association provides an essential voluntary service to help its members in need. The Community Support work is supported by fund-raising events, members' donations and the Patrons' Scheme.
BAM can also help new arrivals to the area to settle down quickly into the local life, meet other people and share a rich variety of resources and information.
A monthly newsletter, BAM News, provides regular updates of local activities, resources and events. It includes articles on past BAM events and details of forthcoming events, as well as a wide range of information about what is happening in the region generally.
The voluntary Committee is elected annually by members to take care of the day to day running of the Association. The Committee and sub-committees work to cement ties with the Principality and its administrative bodies.
