Please note that you may apply to only one trip as your primary selection.  Upon submitting the online application form, it will be sent automatically to the organizers of the trip you have selected.  The organizers may then reply back to you with some trip-specific follow-up questions.  Please respond to these questions within 24 hours.

Remember that you are not obligated at this time to make a full commitment, financial or otherwise, to the trip.  Upon notification of your acceptance to a trip later in November, you will have another full week before your commitment form is due, and until at least early 2017 before any payments are required.

Break Out, Williams!

Best,
