Appalachian Mountain Club


The governance of the Chapter is vested in the Chapter Executive Committee consisting of four permanent members: the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary; three Executives (Communications, Activities and Facilities & Services), plus the AMC’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Director (non-voting).  Nominations and elections are handled by the Chapter Nominating Committee. The newly elected Executive Committee assumes office at the Chapter Annual Meeting ordinarily held in mid-November.

In general, the Executive Committee is responsible for all administrative matters involving the Chapter. Responsibilities of the Executive Committee also include developing the Chapter’s annual budget and appointing all activity and program committee chairs. The Executive Committee is responsible for implementing the AMC’s Vision and Mission at the local level, which primarily involves developing and managing opportunities for people to Be Outdoors.

All members are welcome and urged to attend Executive Committee meetings, which are usually held in the evening on the second Tue. of the month (except for Jul. and Aug.), at the AMC office, but, from time to time may be held at a different location. Check with the Chapter Chair for the location.
