Interested in becoming a Sierra Club outings leader?
Angeles Chapter is home to one of the largest outings programs on the planet , organizing thousands of trips ranging from beach barbecues to mountaineering expeditions. You can take the first step toward becoming a leader by attending a class offered by the chapter Leadership Training Committee on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Center.
The seminar covers all the basics of leadership. Experienced leaders will tell you how to plan a trip, prevent problems on the trail and make sure that everyone – including you – has a great time. They’ll also explain good conservation and safety practices. And they’ll give you tips for getting your “O” rating quickly and then, if you choose, pursuing more advanced ratings. You can find out more about the advanced ratings and other leadership information on the LTC website.
The all-day class costs $25 and includes a copy of the LRB. The application is online athttp://angeles.sierraclub.org/ltc/transfers/ltp_application.pdf
Deadline to register is Saturday, September 21, 2013.
Mail the application and check, payable to Sierra Club, to Steve Botan, LTC Registrar, 18816 Thornwood Circle, Huntington Beach 92646. For more information, you also can contact Botan by phone (714-321-1296) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
