Alpine Club Meets
The Alpine Club is a national club and has members dispersed all over the country and the world. The Meets programme provides great opportunities for fellow members to get to know each other in the climbing areas of the UK and the mountains of the world. UK meets in particular offer the chance for members to drop in, even for just an evening drink, although if attending a dinner it is important to let the co-ordinator know in order to cater for the correct number. Sometimes there are after-dinner speakers and again members are welcome to just turn up for the talk. New members have often attended meets as guests of members before they joined and their presence on meets is particularly welcome both to widen their circle of acquaintance and to assist with maintaining that tradition of openness to prospective members. Non-members may attend meets as guests of members at the discretion of the meet co-ordinator. A 'co-ordinator' is designated for each AC meet.
General queries and suggestions should be addressed to to the Meets Secretary
A general guide to the operation of AC meets is given in the General Meets Guide, and specific guidelines for Meets co-ordinators in Guidelines for Meet Co-ordinators & Expedition Leaders.
Transport and accommodation arrangements and options may be facilitated by the meet co-ordinator although members are always free to book their own and just participate in the activities of the meet on a day to day basis. There are no application forms for UK Meets but for all others please download APPLICATION FORMS . They should be returned with any deposit required to meet co-ordinators as an email attachment or by post .
