OSI at AORE in Portland, Oregon

AORE LOGOAlex Kosseff presents at the annual AORE (Associate of Outdoor Recreation and Education) Conference, held this year in Portland, Oregon, November 12-14 with preconference days November 8-11. Alex will be leading his workshop "10 Steps to Better Risk Management". We hope to see you there!

"10 Steps to Better Risk Management" synopsis:

Risk management reviews are a powerful tool for identifying gaps in safety practices. Learn about reviews and how the Outdoor Safety Institute has used them to identify 10 important risk management steps that many programs aren’t taking. These 10 relatively simple steps involve aspects of management, staffing, crisis response, field practices, training, and transportation. This engaging session (and accompanying 25-page written guide) provide the resources to navigate through these 10 challenges and beyond.

This conference is always a fantastic opportunity to learn and share about the latest and best practices in the outdoor education and recreation field, including the important topic of risk management. Registration is open at the regular rate until October 29 and a late fee applies after that. Sign up soon! Beside the great educational opportunities, we always have fun and look forward to another great conference with great company. Register here!
