Welcome to the start of 2013.
The Board of Directors has been busy so far this year dealing with Access.
We divided the country into 21 canyoneering areas and have filled several of the liaison positions. Rich Rudow has posted a Grand Canyon page, which will serve as the template for the other areas. The only addition to the template will address rescue information and the location of medical facilities in the surrounding areas.
We still have a few key positions remaining that need to be filled. If you are knowledgable about, or have a particular interest in, any of these locations/regions and have a desire to be a part of the growth and success of the American Canyoneers community, we would love to have you be part of the team! My goal is to fill all the liaison positions by the end of the month. Please contact Wolfgang Schuster to volunteer. Additionally, please let us know if you would like to represent an area that is not on the list.
