Financials, reports and plans
We’re committed to operating with openness and integrity. Every year we go through a rigorous external audit and report to you and our partners on our programs and successes. Thanks for your support.
We present much of this information, and more, at a yearly membership meeting at our offices in Sacramento, CA. Join us or view recordings of our past annual meetings.

Form 990 is the annual reporting return that we file with the IRS. It provides some information on our finances and operations.
Our strategic plan is perhaps the best kept secret at the PCTA. Many of our constituents are not aware of our plan that guides our activities and focuses our work. It manages our growth and allows us to make thoughtful decisions on what opportunities to embrace, and what to decline.
The planning process for our current strategic plan was inclusive and far-reaching.
The proposed amended and restated bylaws (the “Proposed Bylaws”) are a comprehensive overhaul of the Pacific Crest Trail Association’s bylaws to better reflect the organization’s current policies and procedures, and to conform the bylaws with the latest requirements of the California Corporations Code.
The Board of Directors unanimously approved the Proposed Bylaws at its meeting on October 19, 2012, and recommends that the members now adopt the Proposed Bylaws.
The Proposed Bylaws include provisions:
- Clarifying and preserving the democratic rights of the members under the California Corporations Code
- Relating to governance (for example, procedures for member voting, nominating members to the Board, the conduct of Board meetings, and the workings of Board committees)
- Clarifying the roles of each officer
- Authorizing use of electronic transmissions and other modern legal processes
- Improving consistency and compliance with nonprofit corporate law throughout
