Volunteers Needed

We need your help. USA Climbing is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by a number of volunteer Committees, Task Forces, and Working Groups. All of these are crucial to running and improving the organization. Currently, we are seeking candidates to fill the multiple positions. Those who would like to participate in planning for our future can help by answering this call for volunteers. Please review the open positions, share with qualified candidates, and/or apply by May 31, 2020.

A full list of the current members of the Board of Directors, committees, task forces, and working groups can be found here:

The Judges Committee was formed to support and advance the development of judging at all USA Climbing sanctioned competitions. The Committee’s activities specifically include the ongoing development and implementation of the Judges Certification Program, with the intention of increasing the number of trained and certified judges for all championship and local level competitions.
