Facing Challenges Together

Mark your calendar for the 26th annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 30-November 1, 2019.

The core objective of the Wilderness Risk Management Conference (WRMC) is to offer an outstanding educational experience to help you mitigate the risks inherent in exploring, working, teaching, and recreating in wild places. 

Attend the WRMC to gain practical risk management skills, network with others in the industry, share field and administrative techniques, and help develop risk management standards for the outdoor adventure and education industries.

The WRMC is presented by NOLS in partnership with Outward BoundStudent Conservation Association, and the members of the WRMC Steering Committee.
