June 2020

As our programs gradually reopen, we’re excited to hear from leaders who are hitting the trail and reconnecting with their communities. We’re also beginning to plan for our upcoming year of programming, and we’re eager to explore ways to leverage the power of remote participation across our branches. At the same time, we continue to be mindful of the very real impacts COVID-19 has had on our current and future operations. In an effort to preserve our core operations, The Mountaineers made the difficult decision to eliminate several staff positions this spring and summer. Many of our remaining staff will also be on furlough for much of July, with as many as 50% of our staff out of the office at any given time.
