Greg Locke Steps Down as a CEC Director

He played an important role in creating the CEC into a National Sports Organization

The Board of Directors of Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) has said that Greg Locke, a member of the board, has decided to step down from his position as a director of the CEC.

The CEC said in a press release: “We are deeply grateful for the work that Greg has done for CEC and appreciate his dedication to the climbing community and the impact he has had on our sport in Canada.”

Locke served on the CEC board for five years and played a key role in creating it as a National Sports Organization (NSO) for climbing, separate from the Alpine Club of Canada.

Locke was instrumental in building the CEC to where it is now and he was a leader at the grass roots level in the Maritime provinces, ensuring that athletes from the east have a pathway to compete nationally.

“The Board of Directors of CEC would like to express our thanks to Greg for his significant contribution to our sport and wish him well with his continued endeavours. We are sure that Greg will remain an active and dynamic member of the climbing community in Canada.”
