The best way for Swiss Alpine Association to function is to have an informed membership. The meeting minutes are a way to keep the membership apprized of what is occurring at Swiss Alpine. The intent is to have minutes for all Membership and Board Meetings from 2000 to current.

Bern Road Information
Bern Road is a public road that until July, 2010 was maintained by Swiss Alpine. After a significant amount of research, and writing a detailed informational briefing, Ron Delpiere-Smith presented his research to the road commission. The result is the maintenance of the road is now being performed by the county. Here is a copy of the research document for those that are interested.
