34 The Alpine Club of Canada | Gazette | Spring 2021 Partner Profile The North Face has been a corporate partner of the ACC for nearly 20 years. What does that mean for our club and for our members? Read on to find out. Leadership Development Course The ACC's 24 local sections across the country each offer our members trips, courses and outings in the local area, which are mostly free. These trips are some of the greatest benefits of being a member of the ACC and one of the great ways our experienced mem- bers give back to their communities by volunteering. Each year in the summer at the GMC, and every other year in the winter at the Fairy Meadow Hut, we invite dedicated leaders from our local sections to join in our Leadership Development Courses to improve their skills. The North Face is a huge part of these courses and we couldn't run them without their help. This is all part of a larger mandate of the club to promote excellence in mountain skills and leadership. Our volunteer leaders all across Canada who plan and lead local outings are the true heart and soul of our club and we're able to do that better with TNF. Gear Discounts for Members Everyone who recreates in the outdoors needs gear and when you factor in different sports and seasons, the costs can add up. The North Face is helping out our members by offering discounts on apparel and equipment as a benefit of ACC membership. This is a benefit for all members of the ACC in good standing and something that we think could benefit our members whatever they do out- doors and wherever they live. The system is as simple as it is awesome with a simple sign up process and straightforward purchasing (see the graphic above for details). Beyond the ACC Leadership Development Course and gear discounts, The North Face has also stepped up to support ACC initiatives and projects over the years like our Summit Bid benefit auction with generous donations. The ACC is fortunate to have The North Face as a partner as they share our goals of encouraging mountaineering and outdoor recreation for Canadians. They believe in what the ACC is doing and they back it up with support for the ACC each year. The North Face Pro Programme To receive your code, please visit: 1. Click APPLY NOW 2.
