Compliance Instructions


This is a quick guide for new volunteers, returning volunteers, and anyone else looking for a simple instruction manual for compliance. This covers Guides, Apprentices, ATAs and Trip Leaders seeking Guide status. (Maintaining or regaining lapsed TL status is more complicated. Better contact Ryan for info on that.)
