Change in Policy Request Form and Guidance

This process applies to suggested changes in volunteer leader, member, course or activity policies or practices made by volunteers, members or leaders. It is the Mountaineers' desire to consider the views of its members, but these views must be balanced with the views of all other members, and the governing documents, mission and strategic plan of The Mountaineers as well as state and federal laws. Further, the existing governance structure of The Mountaineers empowers volunteers and branches to influence policy and practices within a range of acceptable practices.
