2017 is Trail Life USA’s “Year of Training”. Our focus is on equipping you to lead well. And we are doing our best to bring the training to you! Trail-Ready Leadership Conferences (TRLCs) present a rare opportunity for you to meet National Staff, Regional and Area Leaders, and establish a peer network that will help you thrive in your leadership role. You will learn, grow, be inspired—and leave ready to make an eternal impact on the lives of the young men whom God has entrusted to you. TRLCs have been strategically placed in 8 locations around the country, and the cost has been kept low—$39 (with early bird pricing of $34 available up until 1 month prior, then $49 week-of and walk-in pricing)—which includes all materials, lunch on Saturday, and a commemorative pin. Local hosts are busy locating low-cost (even no-cost) lodging options. There is help for every position in your Troop and in your Area.
