All Berkshire Chapter outdoor activities are led by volunteers. Our leaders are skilled in the events they lead. In addition, we have leaders that represent the respective activities and groups of people, that come together about monthly for Executive Committee meetings. We encourage our members to become leaders in the outdoor activities they love, and to participate further in the Executive Committee if you're interested. See our home page for meeting information, or contact email@example.com if you have questions.
Our volunteer leaders are the lifeblood of the chapter. (We're including leaders of hiking/paddling/climbing/etc. trips, trail maintenance work parties, social events, and all the other things we do when we say this.) If you're an active leader, well, *thanks!* If you're not, please consider becoming one and sharing your skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm with others.
