MENOC – Members Events Not Organised by the Club

Members intending to participate in these non-Club events must accept that any arrangement is between them and the organiser of the proposed event, not with AAC(UK) Ltd.  When such an event is arranged through, and monies paid to a tour operator, the tour operator is the organiser, not the member initiating the event. If the event is a package within the definition of the Package Holiday Regulations (PHR), AAC(UK) recommends that such an organiser should be a PHR-compliant tour operator and, if appropriate, ATOL bonded (where a UK tour operator includes air travel in the package).

Members wishing to invite other members to join them on specific holidays should first read the MENOC protocol and MENOC Booking Form, or contact the MENOC co-ordinator.

A copy of the information sheet and application/booking form should be sent to the MENOC co-ordinator, Diana Penny Sherpani on together with suggested copy for publication in the newsletter and on the website.  The website entry may contain more information, a photo (or photo gallery as a hyperlink) and hyperlinks to your information sheet and application/booking form.

For meets and tours that are within the Club’s official programme, please see Meets and Tours – in the UK or Meets and Tours – overseas

Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks, being responsible for their own actions, involvement and safety.
The Club, its officers, Board and Alpine Team members and persons acting on behalf of the Club cannot be held liable for any loss or injury occurring to any participant while taking part in its activities.
