~ If it is not possible to participate in the Boston Chapter leadership training (e.g., if the programs are not being held or there is insufficient availability), it is possible to qualify as a Leader if the individual can demonstrate sufficient hiking experience and/or is recommended by a member of the LWH Committee member, a leader with one of the other Boston Chapter Committees or known leader/Committee member from another Chapter.   Qualification via this route requires review by the Chair and Leader Recruitment/Onboarding committee members.
