Contribute to the 2109 AAC Guidebook to Membership

The 2019 Guidebook to Membership theme will be Climbers Uniting for Change. This can be change at a social level, an industry level, a personal level—however you interpret it.

We’re trying something new this year: giving you, our members, the chance to pitch what you’d like to write about (or see written about) through this form, by January 1st. As an additional incentive, if we pursue and feature your idea, you’ll receive a $100 gift card to Patagonia.

Keep in mind that volunteering to write a story will involve a couple months of drafting and polishing it.

For creative inspiration, take a look at stories we’ve published previously by browsing the Guidebooks online. Some of our favorite stories have included:

  • A member’s experience going with the flow when the 2013 International Climbers’ Meet unexpectedly changed location from Yosemite to Bishop

  • The story of a rescue during the first ascent of Saser Kangri II

  • How one member turned a tragedy into an opportunity to spread the word on rappelling best practices

  • Why the AAC library is what dreams are made of

We can’t wait to hear what you all have in mind for this year’s Guidebook to Membership!
