THIS WILL BE A VIRTUAL SOCIAL:

Do you want to get involved in the Alpine Mentorship Program (AMP) or just simply want to know more about it?

Join this virtual session to learn about the program, ask questions, find out the dates for trips and how you can get a discounted price by helping to co-ordinate an AMP event. We have events planned for this summer. You can also ask questions directly of Peak Stratagem guide, Brent Peters, he is an IFMGA Mountain Guide certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and is the founder of PeakSTRATAGEM and PeaksEAT as well as the writer for the ice climbing book, Icelines. This event is open to all members and non-
members.

There are already some trips that have been planned that you can take over organizing and get a discount (by helping out)! Come and see what cool events will be coming up that you can participate in if you don't fee like organizing anything. Bring your calendar!

Agenda:

1) 7:00 - 7:30 Explain what AMP is, how you can participate, how do you get a good deal on events and what you need to do if you want to organize any events.
2) 7:30 - 8:00 Go through list of trips currently available and brainstorm new ones.

3) If you want to co-ordinate one of the trips, we can assign it to you right at the event and it is all yours!

4) Paper work and other bits.

 

Required Items to Bring:
Your calendars, ideas for new trips, and enthusiasm to want to get out, learn and do cool trips.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Microsoft teams link will be emailed out to participants  

Notes:
About you: You are keen to get involved with the Alpine Club as a participant or trip organizer. Maybe you don't want to lead trips in the future, but are missing some skills to do rock climbing or alpine trips. Or, maybe you just want to get affordable alpine experience.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

Existing trip leaders are welcome to attend if they would like to share their experience and are keen to help attendees become trip organizers.
*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.

Trip Feedback
If you have any feedback, positive or negative, concerning this trip or any other, we want to hear from you!

Thank you for your response.
