AORE Announces Partnership With Experiential Consulting LLC


WHY DID AORE SEEK A PARTNERSHIP WITH EXPERIENTIAL CONSULTING?

In 2020, AORE made the decision to seek out Professional Development Providers - these are organizations that would like to help support the AORE and its mission in a greater capacity by offering educational content and consulting. Ideally, AORE Professional Development Providers participate in sharing initiatives, education, trainings and information with the purpose of advancing the field of outdoor recreation and education, and providing our membership with the tools to do so. Professional Development Providers are invested in the sustainability of the AORE and maintain similar values/goals/missions, in line with AORE.

In relation to Risk Management, Experiential Consulting was a clear choice to partner with.
