The AMC recently adopted a new policy addressing volunteer participation for AMC groups in marches, rallies, and demonstrations. The new policy available here. I recommend that you read it, and keep a copy for your future reference. We are authorized to post chapter activities and display AMC logos and signs while participating, as long as we agree to abide by this policy. Following is a statement of AMC values as they apply to our participation in such events. This statement must appear on any listing of such activities:

The Appalachian Mountain Club is a nonpartisan organization that can advocate for laws, rules, policies, and other outcomes that are consistent with our mission. Our conservation & recreation values know no political allegiance, including our support for a clean and healthy environment, the protection and management of public lands for recreation, and science-based public policy decisions. Participants must refrain from either endorsing or decrying any elected leader by name or nuance through sign or other visible item (hat, pin, etc.).

 If you have questions, please feel free to contact Jeff Fritzinger,
