The last few weeks have been fairly productive for American Canyoneers. As of 21 March 2012, we are incorporated in Arizona. The next step is 501c(3) paperwork which will start in the middle of April. The access map is in the works and should be up for beta evaluation starting in a week or so. Membership is ready to go and we have a PayPal account. Membership is $25 per year/member, $15 for students, $40 for families. Being a member gives you voting privileges for the permanent BOD which will take place near 01 June. All membership proceeds will go towards incorporating and 501c(3) costs.

We are strongly supportive of Dr. Steve Kugath’s efforts in canyoneering accident investigations. We would encourage everyone’s participation to make canyoneering safer for all involved.
