ACC Volunteer Awards

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Alpine Club of Canada. Season to season, day in and day out for over a century, our volunteers run the sections, write articles, lead trips, protect the alpine environment and demonstrate their commitment to the club.
Our volunteers know the mountains. Every season, and in every part of Canada, volunteer trip leaders take enthusiastic groups and new members on climbing, hiking and skiing outings. Sometimes for an afternoon and sometimes for weeks at a time. Our volunteers are skilled, dedicated, giving and tireless. Without them there is simply no Alpine Club.
The ACC Volunteer Awards are intended to recognize those of our members who have made significant contributions in furthering the aims and goals of the Alpine Club of Canada and Canadian mountaineering in general. These Awards are one small way that we hope to show them our appreciation.
Note: In exceptional circumstances the Awards Committee may consider awarding a second award (i.e.: Distinguished Service Award, Silver Rope for Leadership Award, Eric Brooks Leader Award, Don Forest Service Award, President’s Award) to deserving individuals who have received that same award in the past. Please consult the Chair of the Awards Committee prior to submitting your nomination.
