Our New Era · November 12, 2013


Three years ago the American Alpine Club reached out to its members, wrote a plan, and embarked on a journey to become the national club that American climbers truly wanted and needed. Like any great expedition, that journey has been ambitious and challenging—and we have learned a lot along the way.

The AAC staff and board of directors have been given a fresh perspective on our mission and after a yearlong process, the board adopted the following statements that will guide us into a new era:

  • Our MISSION is to support our shared passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb.
  • Our VISION is a united community of competent climbers and healthy climbing landscapes.

To learn more about our new mission and vision visit our website.
