CWA RELEASES TWO NEW PUBLICATIONS

BOULDER, CO (3/2/2013) - The Climbing Wall Association, the trade organization for the climbing wall industry, is pleased to announce the release of two new industry publications. The publications address successful business planning and the development of visitor’s agreements, respectively.
The first publication, “CWA Climbing Gym Business Plan Creation, First Edition”, addresses the necessary business and financial planning needed to open or expand a climbing gym. Authored by Bob Richards of Open Water Ventures, the publication outlines each part of the business planning document for climbing gym owners.
The second publication, “A Guide to Visitor Agreements”, addresses the concepts of negligence, duty of care, the elements of these agreements, and the protections these agreements can afford climbing facilities. Written by attorney Reb Gregg, the guide provides a framework for climbing wall owners and managers seeking to create or improve their visitor agreements.
“The CWA is very happy to be offering these two important publications” stated CEO Bill Zimmermann. “We hope that our members will find them to be a valuable asset. With the growth of the climbing industry, we feel it necessary to provide resources to help prospective gym owners successfully navigate the business planning process in a cost effective way. We also feel that Visitor Agreements are a vital part of the risk management equation for climbing operations and should be reviewed from time to time. The Guide to Visitor Agreements will help in that process.”
These publications are designed as a complement to existing CWA publications and can be purchased on the CWA website HERE. The CWA would like to thank both authors for their time and dedication to these products.
