The process to become a hike or backpack (BP) volunteer leader:
1.  Attend a leader seminar/workshop presented by a Mountaineer branch hiking or backpacking committee.
2.  Read the club minimum hiking activity standards and the hike leader's guide and understand and agree to the responsibilities for a hike or backpack leader.
3.  Successfully complete a mentor hike/BP with a current club hike or backpack leader as a co-leader on a scheduled club hike or backpack activity.
4.  Complete the online trip report for the mentor hike/BP activity, then send an email request to be added onto the leader roster of the hiking or backpacking committee(s) as a regular hike leader. In the email to the committee list the dates of: the leader seminar attended and the mentor hike location/date, and include the name of the mentor co-leader.
