Leader: Paula Brottman

Narrative: A recent search revealed over 60 OOPsters that have not been WEC'd. We need as many TO's as possible to become WECers so that on your trips, at WEC sessions and when referred to you we can assist these member get on level 2 trips. Once you are a WECer your name will pop up when searched by these people, and they can sign up for your level 2 trip and contact you to get WEC'd. OOPSters that paddle level 2 trips, have a greater likelihood to renew and keep paddling with OOPS. They can also be a lot safer on the water when they paddle with friends. Won't you help?

This session is for Trip Organizers that are already Wet Exit Certifiers but have not been "refreshed on their technique" in the last year by Safety, Education or Trips directors. It is also for Trip Organizers who have never been certified to be a Wet Exit Certifier. A short instruction session will occur, practice and certification will follow. Bring a helmet if you have one.
