The Edmonton Section of the ACC is hosting an open-door Trip Coordinator Orientation and Trip Planning session for members and the public. This event is geared towards current and aspiring volunteers interested in the following topics:


  • Coordinating and co-leading trips in Spring/Summer/Fall 2017

  • Mentorship opportunities

  • Updated guidelines and section policies regarding first aid training

  • Trip management (planning, communications, and waiver administration)

  • How to submit a trip or event

  • Booking section equipment for your trip

  • Benefits for volunteers (e.g. course subsidies, advanced booking at ACC huts, pro deals)

  • Volunteer opportunities such as assisting on section courses and urban events

  • Open discussion (questions, feedback, interest in courses, etc)


There will be a presentation followed by an open discussion. This is a great opportunity to talk to other experienced coordinators and to plan your next trip, so bring your trip ideas, maps, and stoke!
