Volunteers are the lifeblood of the AMC. Please consider helping out the Maine Chapter, and have fun at the same time! There is something for everyone, whether it involves staffing an AMC table at an event, doing trail maintenance, leading a trip, or serving on one of the Chapter’s committees. Please be an active part of the Maine Chapter and meet like-minded people who share a passion for the outdoors! More volunteer information is also available on AMC’s webpage.

Please contact Paul Hahn, Nominating Committee Chair, for more information.

Public events: Volunteer to help staff a booth at one of our many events during the year. These include LL Bean Expos, Common Ground Country Fair, Film Festivals, and more. This is the face of the chapter and is a great opportunity to interact with the general public.
