Great Times, Great Friends, Great Outdoors

Each Great Outdoor (GO) Chapter has a leadership team known as a Core Group.  Think of them like a Board of Directors.  Each Chapter elects their own set of Core Group members each year just before our annual conference.  Great Outdoors is an all-volunteer group with no paid positions. The number of people and types of positions on a Chapter Core Group will vary by Chapter.  We have a "parent" organization which we refer to as "Corporate."  The Corporate Board coordinates things between Chapters and puts on the Wilderness Education / Outdoor Experience program, files the corporate tax returns, maintains corporate archives, etc. 

We annually elect three positions (President, VPO & Treassurer) and appoint the rest of the Core Group. The Palm Springs Chapter has established the following Core Group:
