Chiltern has a variety of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year.
Join our Executive Committee (or “Board”)—As the Bylaws articulate, Chiltern is to have a ten-member Executive Committee. This committee (or “or Board” as we affectionately call it) consists of Chair, a Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and Webmaster. The Bylaws still say the latter is a “Newsletter Coordinator,” but we no longer have a newsletter.
Board members serve a two-year term limit, but may run again indefinitely. When necessary a new a Board is elected every autumn (usually in December) at our Annual Meeting. Virtually every year there are Board vacancies; for a complete list of Board Members click on Club Info.
Lead a Trip—Being a trip leader does not require a whole lot of experience. If you have a passion for an outdoor activity, or you enjoy walking through your favorite park or neighborhood, and would like to share that experience with other Chiltern members, post it as an Event! There are of course a few guidelines, such as rating your trip according to the Trip Difficulty Guidelines and reinforcing the Club Etiquette.

Also, if you happen to be part of a conservation organization that needs volunteers for its trails, please feel free to post a trip asking for more volunteers.
