RRGCC to Become a Land Trust

Post by captain static » Fri Feb 17, 2012 1:30 pm

In its first meeting of 2012, the RRGCC Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution adopting Land Trust Standards and Practices and voted to submit an application to become a full member of the Land Trust Alliance. Our adoption of these Standards and Practices plus membership in the Land Trust Alliance will bring with it a number of benefits towards our goal securing and preserving in perpetuity the land on which we climb. For more information on the benefits of becoming a Land Trust visit - http://www.landtrustalliance.org/join/land-trust

We would also like to congratulate Bentley Brackett for being re-elected to a second three year term as a Board member and Uma Nanjundan for being elected as a new member of the Board. Uma is a climber from Florence, Kentucky who has a background in accounting and works as a manager for Duke Energy. In subsequent officer elections the RRGCC’s officers for 2012 are: Paul Vidal, President; Bentley Brackett, Vice President; Uma Nanjundan, Treasurer; and Josephine Neff, Secretary. Many thanks go to our outgoing President, Rick Bost for his service and leadership. We look forward to Rick continuing to serve out the remainder of his term as a BOD member (we don’t let people off that easy, Rick).

Another important matter taken up at the RRGCC’s February 11, 2012 meeting was the discussion of an updated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the RRGCC and the US Forest Service, Daniel Boone National Forest (DBNF). The RRGCC first entered into an MOU with the Forest Service in February 2000 and has been cooperating with the DBNF under the terms of this MOU ever since. The updated MOU intends to improve cooperation between the two parties in regards to developing climbing management plans, encouraging the establishment of new climbing areas, and performing trail work and climbing area maintenance. After the discussion, the RRGCC authorized RRGCC Executive Director, Bill Strachan to submit the updated MOU to the Forest Service for review.
"Be responsible for your actions and sensitive to the concerns of other visitors and land managers. ... Your reward is the opportunity to climb in one of the most beautiful areas in this part of the country." John H. Bronaugh

Capt'n- i'm grateful for the update. interestingly, the last mention i could find of a 'memorandum of understanding' was in a 2002 thread about 'Online Guidebook.'

funny how time kind of passes, but not really?
training is for people who care, i have a job.

anyone who gets elected usually quits climbing in ten years. If elected to president...four.
