The opportunity to learn new skills and refresh old ones is an important benefit of section membership. The section recognizes that our trip coordinators need continual development to maintain their skills, provide a better trip experience, and continue their own progression in the outdoors. As well, the club would like to encourage new volunteers to step forward by taking on trips within their comfort level and having the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to manage trips in mountain terrain. To this end the section believes that offering subsidization to trip coordinators and volunteers through a fair and objective system to take courses and training as they see fit is the most flexible method for all volunteers and the section.
