October 30, 2017

The Mountaineers Leadership Conference is a one-day conference held on Saturday, December 2 at the Seattle Program Center in Magnuson Park. It is an engaging and exciting day of leadership development for you - our community of outstanding leaders - and we hope that you're able to join us!

This year's program includes both esteemed outdoor professionals and seasoned leaders from our own community at The Mountaineers. A series of interactive sessions will explore the many facets of leadership – from honing our decision-making skills, to pedagogy and better teaching, to the "soft-skills" of facilitating positive group dynamics. 

Discount registration codes are available for leaders and volunteers in The Mountaineers' community. Please contact Sara Ramsay for additional information!

We are also excited to announce that all attendees at this year’s Leadership Conference will receive a complimentary copy of Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills, 9th Edition! Although “mountaineering” is called out in the title, this brand new edition of our flagship publication is, at its heart, a book about outdoor skills. With chapters on first aid, risk management, clothing systems, terrain assessment, leadership, conditioning, Leave No Trace – and more! – Freedom 9 is applicable to so much more than technical climbing, and we hope that you find it a valuable tool in your leadership toolkit!
