Our meetup is dedicated to getting people together in the outdoors who have a common interest in hiking. I have been leading this group for over two years and love what we have become! As I like to keep our hikes small (who wants to hike with 20 others!?) I want to create more opportunities for people to join us on the trail. I would love to be able to provide even more variety in the kind of hikes we offer. This is only possible with the dedication of the leadership team.
Northeast Peak Baggers is looking for high quality leaders to organize hikes to the 4000 footers, 52 with a view, and New England Hundred Highest peaks as well as backpacking trips, waterfall hikes, trail maintenance days, snowshoeing, and more! If you love being outdoors, why not share your passion with others?
The expectations of a leader is the following:
* Plan/draft events to schedule. You should have hikes in mind that are within your ability to effectively lead. I am available for support with this.
* Do your research! You need to have an understanding of the trail and know how to communicate to others what they will need/need to know to be safe.
* Check your email/meetup on a regular basis.
* Wilderness First Aid (WFA) certified or the desire to become certified.

It is much easier for people to see an event than having this posted in our discussion board. That being said, there is no physical meeting for this event. It is just to send in your application!
Applications are due no later than March 18th, 2014. The sooner you get yours in, the better! :) All assistant organizers will be chosen by March 23rd and can begin planning hikes starting in April.
