Swiss Out­doors Club

See­king new Pre­si­dent with a new Vi­si­on

Das Schwarze Brett - - INSIDE STORY -

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.

Any­bo­dy in­te­rested in par­ti­ci­pa­ting and crea­ting this new Out­doors Club, plea­se con­tact our Pre­si­dent, Jac­ques Gold­schmidt. You ha­ve 4 weeks!
