In 2013, the Swiss Rock Guides Association was created in Bern, during a meeting of about twenty rock guides.
The aims of the association are:
To defend, promote and enhance the profession of rock guides:
- By creating a network and strengthening the links between its members
- By collaborating with the various bodies linked to the profession (SMGA, Youth and Sport, the Swiss Alpine Club, political and State authorities, etc.)
- By increasing the visibility of the profession among the general public
