This one-day leadership seminar is for both current and prospective leaders of Mountaineers trips and activities.  We will spend the day problem solving with scenarios based on actual trips - the good, the bad, and the ugly... The discussion is always thought provoking with the mix of everyone's own experiences, the scenarios, and the frameworks we present for thinking about leadership.  This event is not activity specific - kayakers, hikers, climbers, sailors, scramblers, dancers, bikers are all encouraged to attend.  We provide breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.  Participants completing the day's activities will receive the "Leadership" badge.  Registration for the day and a continental breakfast starts at 8 a.m.  The seminar begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.
