      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Help Wanted: NW Mountaineering Journal, 2008

Help Wanted: Northwest Mountaineering Journal, 2008

 

The Northwest Mountaineering Journal is looking for volunteer editors to help us assemble our 2008 issue. The journal is published by a team of volunteers in collaboration with The Mountaineers.

 

The journal has been produced annually each summer since 2004. The American Alpine Club E-News has called it "One of the most beautiful electronic publications on the Internet." Past issues of the journal can be found here:

 

http://www.nwmj.org

 

Editorial volunteers can contribute to the journal in a variety of ways. The team is flexible in how each volunteer contributes. Successful volunteers will have the following qualifications:

 

* Mountaineering background with experience in Northwest mountains.

 

* Good English language skills and attention to detail.

 

* Ability to interact well with contributors, especially by e-mail.

 

* Comfort working with computers and the Worldwide Web (or eagerness to learn).

 

* Willingness to contribute ideas and a few hours of time each month as part of a volunteer team. Most of the work of assembling the journal occurs between the March 31 submission deadline and publication in summer.

 

The Northwest Mountaineering Journal is a unique resource for the mountaineering community that contains material not found anywhere else. If you are interested in helping prepare the next journal, send me a private message through this bulletin board or send an e-mail to:

 

submissions@nwmj.org

This call for volunteers generated a pretty good response, so we're no longer actively seeking new recruits. We're happy to hear from potential contributors, though, so feel free to send me a note if you'd like to help out in some way on the NWMJ.
