COVID-19 Information for Outdoors and Experiential Learning Organizations

As the COVID-19 health crisis evolves and impacts our customers, I will post information here that I feel will be of value to you in making critical decisions about your operations from a risk management standpoint.

Steve Smith of Experiential Consulting has compiled links to COVID-19 risk management resources.  I have known Steve for many years and have great respect for his outdoor and experiential learning organization risk management expertise and knowledge.  He recently presented an online panel discussion with three program administrators/risk managers which you will find insightful, and the recording of the webinar is available on his web site.

For members of the AMGA, the NEWS section of their web site contains excellent information regarding operations, risk management and business continuity resources, but you must be a member and log in to access these resources.
