Charles (Reb) Gregg Wilderness Risk Management Award

 

The Charles (Reb) Gregg Wilderness Risk Management Award is an annual award given at the Wilderness Risk Management Conference. The award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions in risk management to the outdoor education and adventure profession.

 

To nominate a wilderness risk manager for this prestigious award, please submit a letter of nomination that addresses the nominee’s contributions to risk management in the areas of leadership, service, and innovation. Submissions are due by July 18, 2014. Please email to wrmc@nols.edu or mail to Wilderness Risk Management Award, c/o NOLS Professional Training, 284 Lincoln St, Lander, WY 82520 USA.

 

Charles (Reb) Gregg is a practicing attorney in Houston, Texas, who specializes in outdoor adventure and education law. He serves on the board of directors of The Student Conservation Association (SCA) and The Friends of Big Bend National Park, as a member of the Wilderness Risk Management Conference steering committee, and on the accreditation council of the Association for Experiential Education. Reb is also legal counsel to a number of organizations, including summer camps, secondary and college outdoor programs, challenge courses, and outfitters.

 

“Reb has truly been the pioneer in the practice of law as it relates to outdoor education and recreation”, said John Gans, the executive director of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). “His leadership and uncanny ability to balance legal necessities and ethical obligation have made him the role model for the industry. The Charles (Reb) Gregg Award is an appropriate way of honoring Reb’s professional legacy.”
