I am an AORE member so that I can connect with other professionals in the outdoor field. This is the best place I have found to connect with professionals across a wide range of specialties and backgrounds. I take advantage of AORE programs and initiatives that allow me to meet and discuss industry trends and best practices so that I am up to date about what is happening across the country.
