CMC Boulder Group Council Vacancies and Annual Dinner Reminder

October 27, 2017

written by Gary Johnston, Chairperson

This is a message to all members of the Boulder Group of the CMC from the Group Council: we need your help! We need volunteers to help with two key Council positions: Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson. Despite a word of mouth campaign for these positions, we’ve been unable to find nominees to be elected at this weekend’s Annual Dinner on November 4th.  This is a call out to all Boulder Group members to please consider leading the Council!

The good news is that many other council positions will be filled by experienced, returning volunteers. These include: Treasurer, Outings Chair, Cabins Chair, Marketing Chair, Conservation Chair, and several at-large Council Members. We also have a nominee for Secretary. The primary duty of the Chairperson is to conduct monthly council meetings, and with experienced council members this can be done effectively by newcomer to the council. In fact, I became Vice Chair without any prior experience on the Council, then Chairperson the following year.

Aside from Chair and Vice Chair, we are also looking for a nominee for Spring/Summer Boulder Mountaineering School Director. This includes Hiking, Snow, and Rock Climbing. We have a returning Hiking School Director with years of experience running that part of BMS.

We’ve been doing great on keeping our membership numbers increasing year over year, and now we just need volunteers to run the programs and activities to make membership a rewarding experience. If you have any questions about any of these positions, and/or have an interest in volunteering to help, please email Gary Johnston, chair@cmcboulder.org.

Finally, a reminder to please sign up for the Annual Dinner, Meeting, and Presentations if you haven’t already done so! It’s on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at 5 PM at St John’s Episcopal Church. Complete information and signup and information can be found here.
