We'll be hosting a series of conference call "listening sessions" to listen to and discuss all sides of the ICO Name Change issue. Please let everyone in your ICO world know about these calls so they can get their voices heard or listen to others - both inside and outside the organization - discuss their views on the proposal to change the name of our Inner City Outings program.
In honor of International Volunteer Day on December 5th, we are giving a little back by celebrating the selfless work of our dedicated volunteers. Join us on a conference call to honor our volunteers and learn about what’s in store for 2013, share your experiences, hear from others leading outings and ask questions of National.
Please join us.
Wednesday, December 5th 4pm - 5pm Pacific Time / 7pm - 8pm Eastern Time
Call In Number: (866) 501-6174 Room #: 20705371892

Parker Legwear, a family-run company in the US and maker of Sierra Club socks, wants to ensure that every one of our great Sierra Club adventures starts with the right gear. Starting this fall, for every three pairs sold, Parker Legwear will donate one pair of socks to a Mission Outdoors program participant or volunteer, to help keep their feet happy while they hike, climb, explore and enjoy the Great Outdoors.
Sierra Club socks are made in the US in Old Fort, North Carolina from recycled and organic fibers. Available in a variety of styles and colors, a portion of the proceeds from each pair is donated to Sierra Club to support our mission. Gear up for fall-hiking and give back by shopping online at www.sierraclubsocks.com
