Your Profile Bio

What should you include in your Bio field? Well, whatever you want! This is your place to share details about you with potential course or activity leaders or fellow members. The bio field is a rich text field, which means you can include bulleted lists (think a climb resume), volunteer history, and much more.

You can also include links to a document or photo on the internet. So if you want to build out a climb resume in google sheets or docs, you can link to it in your bio. That way it is always up to date!

About Privacy

We take privacy very seriously! YOU have the ability to control who views the data you enter into your profile. By default, all of your data is private. You may toggle the privacy setting of each element of your profile by logging in to the site, clicking on profile and clicking on the Privacy link that is next to your name. Please note: if you change your privacy settings, you will need to reenter your password. This is an intentional security measure.

If you apply for an activity or course, the course leaders will have access to your data so they are able to contact you, review your bio and past activities, as well as have access to your medical and emergency contact information if an issue were to arise on the activity.

Ethnicity information is only available to staff; and it is being asked for data collection purposes only. As a nonprofit we frequently apply for grants, and our grantors as for demographic information on grant applications.

Activity History

When you create your account you are likely to have a blank Activity History. If not, you might see several climbs or a class in this section. This section is populated directly from our database. Over time, as you complete climbs, hikes, and courses, you will see your past activities in this section. 

Over the next 6–12 months we will be adding past climb data and some past class data to this section. However, our past data collection was not centralized, so it is unlikely your complete Mazama activity history will ever appear here. Think of this section as Activity History with Mazamas starting in 2018. Please do not email us asking for activities to be added to your history section.

Group History

This block on your profile will capture your history of serving on Mazama committees or teams. 

There is no historical data in this block at this time, as we previously did not have a centralized database for this information. 

We are ready for you to share your committee/team history with us! Go here to learn more and begin the process of adding your group history to your profile.

About Badges

Course completion, skills training, and accomplishments will now be tracked through our Badge System. Check out a full list of badges at beta.mazamas.org/badges. Already qualify for some badges? Request them!

Adding badges to the system is a manual process. Once you request a badge, look for it to be added to your profile within a week.

Please note: The Summitted a Glaciated Peak badge can only be assigned once; this badge is not meant to be used to track your climbing history, it is a qualification badge indicating that you have met the membership requirement.

Mazama Calendar

All Mazama activities appear in one centralized calendar. This will include courses, climbs, hikes, and other events. Click on the calendar link at the top of the page. There are four calendar tabs: All, Education, Activities, and Events. You can apply filters to the calendar, including activity type (climb, hike, outing), place (Mt. Hood), grade, grad preference, and more. The filters are cumulative, so you can filter for B level Mt. Hood climbs for example. Go to mazamas.org/calendar.
