Swiss Outdoors Club
Seeking new President with a new Vision
The Outdoors Club is functioning relatively well and has increased its membership. The cabin is being used well and reservations are ahead of 2016. The issue is that with the exception of the Waldweihnacht, events and hikes are poorly attended and crucially, most of the executive, some having been active since inception, wants to retire.
After a lengthy discussion of several options, they made the decision to carry on until their AGM at the end of January 2018. The executive will stay in place until then to facilitate a transformation and handover to a younger generation. If this is successful, a new executive will then take over. A crucial element of this “transformation” is to redefine the Outdoors Club to be attractive to the younger members of the society, Swiss community and outdoors enthusiasts in general and perhaps work with other outdoors clubs. If this happens we will witness an exciting new era of the club.
Otherwise, the outdoors Club will cease to exist in its present form and the Mt Baker Cabin will henceforth be managed by the Swiss Society who can then decide to keep it or sell it. The Swiss Society Executive may have a person or two dedicated to organize a few outdoor activities for remaining members perhaps interested in such.
