The Angeles Chapter Outings Program
The Angeles Chapter has by far the largest local outings program among Sierra Club chapters. Managing our outings program - with all of its diverse offerings - takes many people dedicated to ensuring that all of our Groups / Sections / Committees have what they need to thrive. The Chapter Org Chart displayed here shows how this works. These three Angeles Chapter committees (i.e., Conservation Committee, Outings Management Committee and Political Committee) have different functions, but all three have essential roles. Outings Management (OMC) oversees the outings program across all of the chapter entities and supports outings chairs. Its Chair and voting members serve as a branch of the Chapter's Executive Committee. OMC also includes: Leadership Training (LTC) helps with leader development by training leaders, and the Safety Committee grants leader ratings and serves to see that outings are conducted safely and within Chapter and Club guidelines. Other members of OMC are the Angeles Chapter's Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) and the Wilderness Training Committee, sponsor of the annual Wilderness Travel Course (WTC). For information about the Safety Committee, including policy and more, visit the Safety pages on this site.
