Climbing Technical Advisory Committee Interest Form

If you are interested in volunteering as a member of the organization-wide Climbing Technical Advisory Committee, fill out this form and we will forward it to the volunteer committee chair so they can review it and respond. This committee invites a total of 7 new members to join annually for a 2-year term.

The Technical Advisory committee will make annual recommendations to climbing committees for implementation of new skills, techniques and devices. The committee will coordinate annual skills and techniques symposiums similar to Seattle’s Forefront event in 2016 to ensure all branches’ committees have a clear understanding of the techniques we teach. The committee will have a representative who works as a liaison to the AAC standards committee. The committee will also work directly with Mountaineers Books to ensure publications are relevant and teaching the most up-to-date techniques. Additionally, the committee will develop a system whereby leaders and course chairs can make technique recommendations.

Thank you for your interest!
