Trip Leader Coordinator for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Hoofer Outing Club

The Hoofer Outing Club had grown exponentially, but new members were mostly novice outdoor enthusiasts. We needed more and better trip leaders. I resurrected a nearly forgotten position as the Club’s Trip Leader Coordinator. I engaged a dozen new trip leaders, secured $1600 in leader development scholarships, increased the leader development and recognition budgets by 1500%, and advised the Club’s executive board in policy improvements. Hoofers honored me with the 2012-2013 “Hoofer of the Year” award for my work. Tools used included:┬ánetwork weaving and coaching and facilitation.
