Penn State Outing Club Needs Your Help

If you have not been watching the news, you might not know that the Penn State Outing clubs have been restricted to Campus. They are not allowed to go outdoors.  100 Years of Helping students, relax, learn, grow, explore and graduate have been eliminated by a group of old scared board members, their attorneys and risk managers.  You can read more about the issues here.

Read the article and then contact Penn State and let them know how stupid and antiquated this thinking is!

In this age of football concussions this entire argument is stupid!

Date:                         2010

Presentation:                       Wilderness First Aid            http://rec-law.us/17L6pQB

This presentation looked at myths and realities of first aid and the special issues of wilderness first aid. It also examined the various state Good Samaritan statutes and why some first aid “designations” might now qualify under the act.

For additional articles on the subject see:

Seriously, you have to send a memo about this, the issue is not what they are doing, it is who you are allowing to instruct.                                                                                                 http://rec-law.us/Ap1bRu

JOREL: Call for Editor-in-Chief

Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership

http://www.ejorel.com

Call for Editor-in-Chief

The advisory group of the Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership is seeking candidates for the position of Editor-in-Chief. Deadline: Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Journal Philosophy & Purpose: This peer-reviewed journal focuses on the areas of outdoor recreation, education, and leadership. This collaborative effort between the Association for Outdoor Recreation and Education (AORE), the Wilderness Education Association (WEA), and the Western Kentucky University Research Foundation (WKURF) works to improve research and practice and reduce the disparity between the two in the represented disciplines.

The journal’s mission is to improve outdoor recreation, education, and leadership through the publication and dissemination of peer-reviewed manuscripts centered on professional practice, research, and theoretical discussions. Publishing articles that contribute to the development of theory and practice is a guiding principle of the journal.

Journal Format: JOREL, a subscription-based electronic journal, creates greater accessibility to a global audience while maintaining reasonable subscription rates. In addition, using tools from The Berkeley Electronic Press helps ensure compliance with web content accessibility standards.

Primary Editor Responsibilities: The Editor-in-Chief’s responsibilities include nearly almost all aspects of the journal manuscript publishing process including such tasks as: recruiting manuscript submissions; ensuring manuscript quality; assigning reviewers; tracking submissions and reviewer progress; communication with authors and seeing that publication deadlines are met; manuscript copy-editing and formatting; and publishing manuscripts to the electronic journal.

JOREL will utilize resources from The Berkeley Electronic Press, such as EdiKit Back Office Solutions to assist the editor in these duties. In addition, a small stipend is available for hiring an editorial assistant to assist the editor-in-chief with their responsibilities. The Editor will work with a six member advisory group comprised of two representatives from WEA, AORE and WKURF.

Editor Salary: $3,000 (paid $1,500 per issue).

Appointment Details: One-year appointment with the responsibility for publishing two issues.
Editor Qualifications: The successful candidate will have: a strong demonstrated understanding of the field of outdoor recreation, education, and leadership; a strong publication record; manuscript reviewing experience; and a demonstrated ability to communicate well with others.

Application Process: Interested parties should submit a cover letter and CV highlighting their qualifications to Dr. Raymond Poff, raymond.poff@wku.edu, by the end of the day, Wednesday, September 22, 2010.
