The only requirement is that the person should be a member of a recognised BMW club.

Club of the Year.

The Club of the Year Award honours recognised clubs for excellent and outstanding performance. This award acknowledges the active growth of a club, its social responsibility and exceptional dedication. For example, a club can be nominated for its organisation of independent club events, which highlight the significance of the BMW Clubs International Council or which particularly promote cooperation between BMW clubs and the BMW Group.

Only recognised clubs can be nominated by their respective umbrella association. The Club of the Year award was presented for the first time in 2012.

To nominate a club for Club of the Year, please download the nomination form, complete it and return it to us by 31 January.
