Orange County Sierra Singles 20s,30s,40s Message Board › Can You Become a Sierra Club Leader? We REALLY NEED YOU!
You folks probably don't need a special reminder, but the Leadership
Training Committee seldom ventures south of the LA line.
The October 2, 2010
seminar in Costa Mesa will be our first class in OC in 18 months, and
there's no telling when we will next be offering a class so convenient
to prospective leaders here.
Don't know if that will persuade many people to get off the fence and
finally become leaders, but hey, it's worth a shot.
Thanks for any, uh, persuasion you can direct at folks who really
should be leading outings.
Zero in on a likely leader candidate and
encourage them to become a LEADER!
