Sixteen years have come to pass, and through all those years AMCI has always been there to provide the training, the activities, the friendships and the support that keeps us alive in our quest for those challenging peaks and summits. So that we may face the harsh realities of life with renewed vigor and faith.

We, the members of AMCI pride ourselves of being referred to as an Ayala Mountaineer. But how much do we want it? Do we really umderstand what an Ayala Mountaineer is all about? Do we just take advantage of the goodwill generated by being identified with the Club?

Let us all join hands and together with one voice pledge our loyalty and cooperation to our fellow Ayala Mountaineers, especially to the leaders of AMCI so that we may continue to realize the fulfillment of the purposes to which our Club was instituted.

Together let us plot AMCI's future direction as we set our sights to the next millenium.
