Title: Broadband Leader Boot Camp 2012
Location: Kelly Place Bed and Breakfast, Cortez, Colorado near the Four Corners (AZ/CO/NM/UT)
Description: We’re seeking leader-types who are interested in leading a Broadband to attend our fourth annual Broadband Leader Boot Camp – March 22-26, 2012, near Cortez, Colorado. Interested members may nominate themselves for Boot Camp 2012 by submitting an application at https://www.greatoldbroads.org//get-involved/broadbands/boot-camp-ap.
Leaders will be trained in grassroots organization, communication, lobbying skills, wilderness history, documentation of on-the-ground abuses, and Broads positions on issues such as grazing, off-road vehicles, and oil, gas, and mineral development. The training will run for three full days and four evenings over a working weekend.
We will train up to 15 new leaders from across the country to organize local Broads. This training, including meals and lodging, is offered to those committed to leading a Broadband at no charge. Participants will be responsible for travel to Cortez, attending the full Boot Camp training, and developing a one-year plan for their Broadband.
In the heart of the archeologically-rich Four Corners area, Kelly Place is adjacent to the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and near Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, and the Yucca House National Monument.
Contact our Broadband Coordinator, Elsa Jagniecki if you have any questions.
