Coordinators Reporting to Vice-Chairman

Expeditions Name: Dave Ciesla
Solicits, evaluates, and make recommendation to the EXCOM to about which proposals should be sponsored bi-annually.

Name: Marty Comisky
Solicits, coordinates, and organizes training events for the membership throughout the year and posts the details to the club calendar.

Former gymnast and suspected contortionist, Marty Comisky runs a number of clinics for the PMC. He enjoys teaching, and it is his hope that his work will keep to a minimum the number of PMC climbers suffering embarrassing accidents and being featured on blogs about terrible anchors. If he had written that last sentence himself, no doubt it would have been better constructed. By last count, he knows how to tie 417 knots and can belay 6 people at once.
