WRMC 2017 Nov 1-3 Portland ME

WRMC 2017WRMC 2017 is almost here!!! Check out all the Conference info here. This year's event is full and sure to be another great gathering. Check the waitlist if you're still hoping to make it, and every year the workshops are recapped on the WRMC website after the event.



This year's conference will be held in Portland, Maine, November 1-3, 2017, with two days of pre-conference workshops October 31 and November 1.

Once again, OSI will be at the Conference. Andy Leider and Alex Kossef will be presenting a brand new workshop to help you take home what you learned. Every year, the Conference joins an exceptional meeting of minds and stimulates all sorts of ideas related to managing risk for your program. It is always an enthusiastic and high-energy gathering of leaders at the front edge of risk management in the outdoor field, and it will likely push you to step up your program to its very best. What to do with all those new ideas and fresh energy? Andrew and Alex will help you put it all together and walk out the door with confidence, equipped with a solid outline for moving forward with the next steps. It's not just what you learned; it's what you do with it that really matters.


OSI's Operations Director Jenny LePage will also be there, available to meet and answer questions at the OSI booth in the Exhibitor Hall along with Andy and Alex. The conference is a great opportunity to schedule a meeting to discuss a risk management project or otherwise; if you want to set some time aside in advance to make sure it happens, let us know, or you can find us in the Hall or at one of the many fantastic workshops. As usual, we look forward to the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues in the community, new and old. Stop by and say hi!
