2020 Athlete Election: Vote Now for Athlete Directors on USA Climbing Board of Directors

2020 Athlete Election: Vote Now for Athlete Directors on USA Climbing Board of Directors


To USA Climbing Past and Present Athletes:
 
USA Climbing’s Board of Directors recently approved expanding the Board from 10 to 15 Directors. As part of this change the athlete voice on the Board will expand from 20% to 33.3%, the most significant change to athlete engagement since its founding. As such, USA Climbing has two (2) open Athlete Director positions on the Board of Directors.


We are extending the deadline for Paraclimbing Members to acquire their membership for the upcoming Athlete Election. Paraclimbing Members now have until 12:00 p.m. MST on December 10th, 2020 to become "current" members to vote in the election.

This means you must complete your SafeSport training prior to the aforementioned deadline. Introductory Members are not eligible to vote in this election. If you currently have a Introductory Membership and you wish to vote in this athlete election, you must upgrade to a Competitor, Collegiate, or Paraclimbing Membership.

Below is a list of athletes that are currently eligible to vote in this election.
