April 6,2024 Leadership Training Seminar 

The Angeles Chapter Leadership Training Committee is offering another "hybrid" seminar, all virtual. Learn about essential topics from Sierra Club Values, Conservation and Safety, to best leadership practices, group management, trip planning, steps to leadership and a First Aid overview, followed by our legendary scenarios. Because there's an online e-learning component and homework and a pre-exam, you'll want to register enough in advance to guarantee your spot as space is limited.  Later applications may be accepted on a space-available basis but are not guaranteed, so register early. Open to leaders refreshing their rating, but priority is given to leader candidates. Come learn all about the best leadership practices of our outings program. 

Note: Our Leader's Reference Book (LRB) was revised in 2022 just as National Sierra Club  has launched a new Outings Leadership Training ("OLT)" presenting the latest training on Sierra Club values, commitments, equity and more. Angeles is already incorporating these trainings into our own, refining our seminar throughout 2023 and including National's online e-learning.

You'll need to be a Sierra Club member in order to do this seminar and access Campfire Learning.
