Sexual Harassment Course & Sexual Harassment Policy

Please take note that in 2020, the 46er Executive Board of Directors adopted a new Sexual Harassment prevention policy. ALL volunteers will now be required to take the approved online training AND sign the 46er policy yearly PRIOR to attending volunteer activities. If you are considering volunteering in 2022, please allow yourself enough time to complete the training, which takes approximately 45-50 minutes, so that information can be submitted and entered into our database for reference at each event. Training certificates and signed policies will not be accepted by leaders at events. The Executive Board recently approved that you will earn 1 hour toward your Conservation Service Award (CSA) for completing the online training if both your certificate and signed policy are submitted. Screenshots of training certificates AND signed policies can be sent to activity leaders or emailed directly to our database coordinator at The link to the approved online training and policy can be found below.

We have adopted this policy to protect not only our wonderful and dedicated volunteers, but also the club that we love. We appreciate your efforts to give back to the mountains.
