Throughout that time, Alex has been an integral part of the Section Executive and the Board of Directors during and after their incorporation, which included serving as Section Chair between 2015 and 2018. As Section Chair, Alex played monumental roles in the reconstruction of the Bon Echo hut and in advocating for climbing access in Ontario.
