The WMCC’s new Operating Executive began on May 15th, 2023! Stephanie Giguere, formerly WMCC president, has accepted the role of Operating Executive, a 20 hour per week paid position. Before the addition of an Operating Executive, 100% of the work of the WMCC was done by volunteers. That’s a lot of work! As a grassroots, nonprofit organization, volunteers will always be the backbone of the WMCC, but having an Operating Executive to manage much of the day to day tasks will take some of the burden off of our volunteers and boost the organization to the next level. Stephanie will support the WMCC in applying for more grants, building our membership base, hosting more trail days and other events, and most importantly, protecting access to our outdoor climbing resources.
You can learn more about Stephanie and her work with the WMCC on episode #53 of the Climbing Advocate podcast.
