Club Leadership Development Opportunities

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is hosting a Volunteer Leadership Meeting August 26-28 in Shepherdstown, WV as part of a track of leadership development opportunities for club members. ATC expects representation from most all A.T. clubs.

The program offers opportunities to learn about the cooperative management system, best practices from other clubs, tips for volunteer leadership, current management issues along the Trail, and the chance to build relationships with others who give-back in big ways to the Appalachian Trail. For more information about the Volunteer Leadership Meeting, contact Leanna Joyner.
