Volunteer needed to fill vacant Membership Secretary Position

After 4 years in this position, I am now looking for an eager, outgoing and organized member to take on the position of Membership Secretary. You will be the front line person who responds to inquiries from the public about participating in Club activities and directing them to appropriate trip leaders. The job also involves banking cheques and mailing out signup sheets and consent forms quarterly to trip leaders. There is volunteer backup to help, when you are vacationing.

The position is a member of the Board of Directors for a 2 year term. The membership Secretary fills a vital role in the continuing success of the NSH and I hope you will consider stepping up and filling this position.

Federation of Mountain Clubs AGM – June 2018

It has become a tradition for our club to send more than one representative to the FMCBC AGM which changes location every year. This year’s meeting was held in Victoria. Previous meetings were held in Penticton, Vancouver, Kamloops, Castlegar and Squamish. Next year’s meeting will be held in Chilliwack.
In addition to organizing the venue for the meeting, the host clubs are providing accommodation for the attendees and offer a variety of activities, such as hiking and cycling, over the two days of the AGM weekend. While not all the NSH hikers who go to the AGM are attending the business meeting, this event represents a great opportunity for them to meet other clubs’ members and get to know the local hiking holes.
This year, four NSH hikers went to the AGM in Victoria: Cristina Jacob, Katy Poon, Pam Robertson and Donna Nyberg. Next year you could be one of them and you will have the travel and accommodation all supported by the Federation. If you want to learn more about the Federation’s activities and the 2018 AGM here is a link to the FMCBC most recent Newsletter.
