Del Albright's Volunteer Leadership and Land Stewardship

Postby schwalby » Fri Dec 18, 2015 4:25 pm

Great American Charitable Events (parent non-profit of the Great American Jeep Rally) has organized and will be hosting this seminar. It will be the first one outside of California so we are attracting a lot of people from all over the Eastern part of the country. It will be a great opportunity to build relationships and contacts.

It is $50, meals and lodging included. There are only 23 openings so there is an application process. Also the first 3 modules of the RLTC program have to be completed.

No but what format do you need it in? I can probably convert it.

Here you are.

I can do PDF also but this should at least allow you to fill out and email me without having to snail mail or scan.

I'd bet that is one of the biggest hold backs. Not to many folks around here have done the course

The first three can be done within in a few hours. I have done the full course and it really doesn't take that long to do at all.

Is there a detailed agenda? Does this course really span 4 whole days? I can't afford to spend 4 days. I could do a day to meet people.

It is 2.5 days. Friday - Sunday mid day. April 7th is the Thursday before for people to show up that evening, be there and ready for Friday morning. It is an all or nothing seminar because group dynamics is a big part of it. This is a very well done and proven seminar, pass graduates have learned a ton from it.

From the top of the VLLS page.

Are you losing volunteers from your club or group?
Are you finding personalities an issue in your chosen recreation?
Are your meetings unproductive and do they run way too long?
Would you like to become a better public speaker?
Do you wish you had a better system for organizing events, runs and meetings?
If you answered yes to any of these, then VLLS is your solution!


I think the NEA answers yes to ever single one of those.

I would argue that the NEA has suffered from these problems in the past but to a very substantial degree we have now turned the corner . . .

I am currently collaborating on no less than 6 different land use initiatives plus helping to plan 3 major events. I would like to participate but devoting a weekend this time of year is the challenge. When is the application deadline? What specifically can be said about the venue?

Leadership.
Land Stewardship.

I know in both subjects many people in the NEA4WD would benefit.

What do you mean by what can be specifically said about the venue?

Application acceptance is cut off end of March but that is really putting yourself at a disadvantage since the first modules of RLTC need to be done and graded by Del.

I understand that a lot of people are busy but this opportunity is not something that has ever come up in the East Coast before, and may never again.

Either way my job is not to convince people to come to this. I have spent countless hours setting this up and it is coming at a cost to the Rally.

Bottom line passing on an opportunity like this says a lot for the wheeling community in the East Coast.

Maybe I'm wrong in the reading of this comment, but don't you mean " . . . says a lot against the wheeling community . . .? "For" suggests a positive attitude towards the wheeling community and I don't think not going to this weekend event is a positive thing.

I don't mean to be the forum police, so forgive me if that was your thought. I just want people reading your comments to get the full impact of your statement, which I fully agree with by the way.

If I'm wrong, please forgive me.

We have taken a look at the needs of the trails community, and with that we have made some changes to this seminar! We hope these changes help encourage more people to sign up! Please be sure to share this with your clubs and organizations!

Its completing the RLTC still a prerequisite? I started looking at the course but squeezing it in between now and then will be challenging.

The first three modules are. Should take but a few hours, little chunks at a time.
