The AORE Staff Led Committees are chaired by volunteers and work toward providing the membership with important opportunities, resources, and information relevant to the field of outdoor recreation and education. Committees communicate to and with the membership addressing common issues, providing solutions to problems and building community. Guided by our Executive Director and national office team, committees help to operationalize AORE's work plan through a variety of standing and annual projects that support the associations Strategic Framework. The collective efforts of committee members play an integral role in supporting our staff as they develop and outline AORE's next chapter of growth within the outdoor recreation and education space. We appreciate the diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and expertise that each one of these volunteers brings to the work.
Staff Led Committees are not involved with the Annual Conference.
Each committee is responsible for the following standing tasks:
We understand that many members may not know where to start with DEI work, and others are along their journey but are hitting barriers in their understanding or ability to move forward. We want to support all in this work and understand that DE&I are not easy topics and that there is always hesitation about saying "the wrong thing". Sometimes, learning is messy, and we want to create space for that without potentially doing harm to members. If you have a question and are seeking and answer, we have created a form to submit your question anonymously here as an alternative to the message board. A member from the DEI committee will receive your question and can bring it forward to the message boards in a way where all members can benefit from learning.
