In this episode, you’ll hear from OIA’s Executive Director Amy Roberts. This is the second in a series of quarterly installments to keep our members updated about our projects, initiatives and general industry happenings. We spoke with Amy over Skype to talk about the many achievements, developments and headlines that have dominated the association’s focus since January 2017. As a reminder, OIA’s work focuses on three foundational pillars: policy, participation and sustainable business. You can read more about them and the work we do in those areas on our website outdoorindustry.org. In this episode, we focus heavily on policy work, especially as it relates to America’s public lands and outdoor recreation, as well as the developing news around the twice-a-year industry trade show, Outdoor Retailer.
