Outings Chair and Outings Leaders for the Prince George’s Group!

The Prince George’s Sierra Club Group is looking for volunteers willing to become the Group’s Outings Chair or to become an Outings Leader for the Group’s upcoming outings. 

Outings Chair:  The Outings Chair provides leadership to the Group’s outings and field trips program and makes outdoor activities an integrated and vital element of Group efforts. S/he would work closely with the Executive Committee in developing and overseeing a vibrant and relevant outings program for the Prince George’s Group.

Outings leaders:  A significant component of Sierra Club outings involves taking participants into the out-of-doors.  The outings leader’s role is to minimize the risks to safety of participants, including proper participant screening before outings; to conduct outings legally in a manner consistent with Club policies and ethics; and to have the technical, first aid, and leadership experience to safely conduct the outings s/he leads. Outings leaders will have to complete first aid training, complete an online Sierra Club Outings Leader Training Course, and co-lead two trips with another leader.

If you’re interested in volunteering in either role for the Prince George’s Group, please contact Martha Ainsworth (Martha.ainsworth[@] or 301-262-8389).  For more information on becoming a SC Outings Leader, contact Jan Hoffmaster (jhoff2370[@] or 410-384-7344).
