Club Volunteers

The B.C. Mountaineering Club is maintained and improved by the generous and very much appreciated volunteer help provided by many of our members... both new and older member. The amount of time ranges anywhere from a couple of hours each week (on average) to a only few hours per month... at all helps toward maintaining and improving our club. Please consider giving back to the outdoor community by donating some of your free time to helping our club improve and grow in areas that interest you. Please contact us and to let us know which volunteer area would interest you, such as helping with trail work or editing our monthly newsletters... thank you!

This year's BCMC Board of Directors:
Our club's Board of Directors (also known as the Executive Committee) consists of up to 17 volunteer members... with the current members listed below. The Board meets on the first Tuesday of each month, excluding July and August, to oversee day-to-day operations, report business changes, deal with membership issues, provide updates on current projects, and discuss future objectives. If you're interested in learning what our Directors have discussed in the past, you can download the "minutes" (notes) of previous meetings from our Club Business page. Please note, if you're interested in attending a Board meeting, please do... they're open for club members to attend (as an observer). Once you're sure you'll attend, please email any of the Directors, or all of them at exec@bcmc.ca, so at least one of them knows what you're interesting in learning more about, thank you.

A special "thank you" goes out to several members who, behind the scenes, have volunteered their time to help make things run smoothly: Brittany Zenger for being a first responder to membership-related emails, Werner Grzimek for managing the Partner List, storing Marketing Materials and Membership Waivers, Kristina Andrzejczuk for managing the Twitter account and Facebook page... and to many others who volunteer at events or on various club committees, as well the members involved in organizing, and sharing their knowledge in, the various club courses, trips and camps. The BCMC could not operate without all these excellent club volunteers.
