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!
