President’s Message:

For the last ten years, momentum has been building among members of the Alpine Club of Canada’s Board of Directors and senior management team toward the Club’s need to address its direction and purpose. The ACC’s Centennial in 2006 certainly brought the past and future 100 years into focus.

I am pleased to report that in the past couple of years, the board has worked on developing and adopting a Vision, Mission Statement, Goals and a Strategic Plan, which I encourage all members to read. The Club will now pursue the path set out in our Vision and Mission with vigour and I am convinced that the Strategic Plan will make the Club stronger and more able to react to its challenges.

For me, this is an exciting step forward. I believe the Board has acted bravely and positively in taking this important step, and in so doing reminded us of David Lloyd George, who once said, “Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated; you can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.”

I hope that you, our members, will help us on this road whenever and however you can. In the meantime, get out there and as always, mind yourself and have fun.

Peter Muir
President
