Who is the OIA?

OIA Board of Directors

Our CEO works closely with the volunteer Board of Directors listed below, which is comprised of dedicated individuals from the outdoor recreation industry. They all give up their time freely for a common cause and bring many years of senior management experience and knowledge to the OIA.

The OIA Board of Directors are all volunteers, giving their time, travel and expenses all free of charge, in addition to their companies being fully paid OIA members.
