Trip Coordinator Rewards Program
The Executive Board is excited to officially launch a section 'Trip Coordinator Rewards Program' - follow the link below for details. This program is a monetary rewards program aimed to give back to trip coordinators who volunteer their time and effort organizing club activities. The program two pronged, a fiscal award to members in the form of a MEC gift cards or camp or course subsidy who organize club activities per fiscal year and a lifetime a...achievement award that rewards members with gear after achieving trip bench marks throughout a members club career. Remember, eligible trip coordinators must earn a minimum of three points to receive a fiscal reward; so if you are thinking of organizing a trip this year, fill out your trip submittal forms before Oct 15 to be credited, the more points the greater the reward. All eligible trip coordinators who have lead trips and activities this fiscal year will be announced and awarded at this year's Annual General Meeting (late Oct). Further details about the Trip Coordinator Rewards Program will also be covered at the AGM.
