American Alpine Club looking for Special Volunteers and Interns

We’re Hiring a Volunteer

Editor and Intern

“Men wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful, honor and recognition in case of success…”

While we are not recruiting for anything as hazardous as Ernest Shackleton‘s expedition, we are looking for an extraordinary volunteer for a one-of-a-kind position and a talented intern.

Digital Editor

The AAC is seeking someone who is passionate about climbing and the documenation of new routes, expeditions, and accidents. We hope to find a dedicated, long-term volunteer for the new position of Digital Editor, helping AAC staff and other volunteers develop, populate, and curate the AAC’s new publications website, as well as new forms of digital storytelling. We won’t lie: There will be substantial grunt work involved. But you’ll also be a key leader and manager in shaping the future of the AAC’s digital information resources. If you love the AAJ and Accidents, and you love online information, this may be the volunteer opportunity of a lifetime. Previous experience with publishing on WordPress or similar platforms very important. Residence in metro Denver area helpful but not required. The time and flexibility for a significant commitment to AAC publications: essential. If this sounds appealing, contact Dougald MacDonald, AAC Executive Editor. Honor and recognition (and some cool perks, too) are guaranteed.

Publications Intern

Always dreamed of working on the American Alpine Journal or Accidents in North American Mountaineering? Want to learn print and digital publishing skills in the climbing industry? The Publications Intern will work among a dedicated team of climbers and editors to gain lifelong skills in multimedia journalism and publishing. While intern missions vary from day to day, the AAC gives interns the freedom to design work plans that support both the organization and their future aspirations. Interns must work from AAC headquarters in Golden, CO and commit 20 hours/week for four to six months. The Publications Intern position is unpaid; however, interns may receive college credit. Check out the complete description. Applicants should email their resume and cover letter to Erik Rieger, AAC Assistant Editor.

New American Alpine Club Library Book Club starting in Vermont

Our focus is to discuss mountaineering literature, new and old, covering the world’s mountains.

Before our first meeting! – Please email me a list of three books you’d like to suggest we read. I’ll collate these suggestions and bring them to the meeting.

First meeting – Wednesday, February 22nd, 7pm, at the Carpenter Carse Library, 69 Ballards Corner, Hinesburg, VT 05461

(Some folks have indicated they may not be able to make this meeting but are still interested in future meetings.)

Agenda/Goals (this first meeting will be organizational in nature, all you need to read is this email!)

Introductions

Who we are

How we became interested in mountain books

What we’ve enjoyed reading

Where we find our books

Do you consider yourself a collector or casual reader?

Etc.

Decide on what to read, perhaps select first three titles

Decide on frequency of meetings (monthly?)

Select next date options (will need to confirm with Library)

(Please send me other thoughts you may have for our agenda. Thanks!)

Library rules – Non-alcoholic drinks are okay.

We should remove our own trash. (Leave no trace!)

The library has just installed a new carpet so they’d like to keep it as clean as possible.

I plan to arrive about 6:45pm to set up tables and chairs.

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you think may be interested. I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

Cheers, Greg
