Hiring in Your Backyard: New Positions at the AAC

The American Alpine Club is embarking on a new five-year strategic plan that calls for the most significant and exciting program changes in the Club’s 109-year history. The AAC is becoming a community-driven organization that acts locally to unite climbers and advance the climbing way of life through community events, conservation projects, mentorship, and other programs that further the Club’s mission.

To accomplish these ends, the AAC is hiring enthusiastic climbers to build a sustainable support system for members, starting with local volunteers and Club activists. Two positions currently open are Community Programs Director and Regional Coordinator (Northeast Region) [PDFs].

The Community Programs Director will expand the AAC’s grassroots network with the goal of delivering more of the Club’s programs at the local level. This position must be based in Golden, Colorado.

From their home areas across the country, full-time Regional Coordinators will support and expand the AAC’s local community network and activities, volunteer programs, and membership. One Regional Coordinator is already on staff in the Pacific Northwest; the AAC’s next regional hire will be in the Northeast Region, which stretches from Washington, D.C. to Maine.

If you’re passionate about climbing and believe that your background would help expand the AAC’s local reach, please visit the AAC Jobs Page for application information:
