Lappe Nordic Ski Club Policies

Volunteer Engagement Policy:
Lappe Nordic Ski Club is a "club", not a business, that operates primarily through the efforts of its members who volunteer time and effort. This allows the club to operate its many excellent programs with very low fees for its member participants. To ensure this continues, the Lappe Board has introduced a formal Volunteer Engagement plan. This plan details volunteer opportunities as well as exemptions for new members and members in the younger Jackrabbit programs.
