What does a board member do?

A CRAG-VT board member should have a passion for climbing, an interest in sustainable conservation and land use, and seek to make the Vermont climbing community one that is welcoming and accessible to those who wish to enjoy climbing here. Board members meet on the first Tuesday of every month, and volunteer throughout the year across a broad range of initiatives. Board members generally contribute 2 – 10 hours per month, as our efforts fluctuate seasonally. We are currently seeking new board members with a range of skills, outlined below.

- Attend all board meetings and vote on board initiatives
- Review and understand distributed board documents
- Serve as the Chair or Secretary of at least one committee (see below).
- Volunteer your time at or in preparation for Events, Stewardship Days, and the VT Climbing Festival
- Table at a Monthly Member Meetup 1-2 times per year
- Participate in a weekend long board retreat
- Contribute one 1-2 page article for the CRAG-Rag, CRAG-VT’s outreach publication

Access Committee
The Access & Acquisitions committee guides development of climbing access and conservation advocacy work on private and public lands. This includes maintaining existing climbing areas managed by CRAG-VT & associated relationships, identifying new opportunities to broaden Vermont’s climbing resources, working with stakeholders to create and maintain climbing access, writing and reviewing climbing policy recommendations with the state, and supporting CRAG-VT’s relationships with neighbors.

Stewardship & Education Committee
The Stewardship and Education Committee works to cultivate an ethic of stewardship in the Vermont Climbing community. They do so by organizing and leading trail work and cliff area improvement efforts as well as understanding and communicating evolving best practices for supporting long term ecosystem health and community (neighbor) relationships at climbing areas.

Events Committee
CRAG-VT hosts events throughout the year that foster a sense of community amongst Vermont climbers, offer educational opportunities, and support broader fundraising efforts. The Events Committee leads the way in dreaming up and organizing CRAG-VT events, including the Vermont Climbing Festival, Member Meetups, Film Showings, Speaker Series, Clinics, and beyond.

JDEI Committee
The JDEI Committee serves as a guide for the staff, board and all working groups in support of the integration of justice, diversity, equity and inclusion principles into CRAG-VT’s work. The JDEI committee works with other committees to ensure the work we do and the events we offer are through a lense of inclusivity and accessibility.

Development Committee
The Development Committee supports the ED in fundraising through memberships, the major donor program and corporate sponsorships, and solicits in-kind donations for raffles, auctions and other fundraising opportunities.
