As I begin my second year as executive director at the Green Mountain Club, I think back to last year's annual meeting at Mountain Meadow Lodge in Killington, when I had been on the job for just a few weeks. I couldn't have planned a better way to start my tenure at the club. Annual meeting is a special GMC institution that welcomes in the summer hiking season and affords a rich opportunity to spend time with old friends and new acquaintances. 

For me, the meeting was a chance to meet and work with the staff and volunteers whose unparalleled passion for the club and hiking make the GMC such a special organization. I hope you will join me this year for our 105th annual meeting on June 13 at GMC's Visitor Center in Waterbury Center. 

This year will be especially historic as on Friday, June 12, we will celebrate the official opening of the Winooski Valley Long Trail Relocation and the new Winooski River Footbridge. More than 100 years after the project was first proposed, the Green Mountain Club will finally celebrate this hostoric crossing that will forever connect the Long Trail from Camels Hump to Mount Mansfield. 

I hope you will join us in this celebration and our annual meeting!

Executive Director
