Advocacy 101: Take it Outside to Influence Public Policy

Recorded, On Demand


Kirk Bailey, Vice President of Government Affairs and David Weinstein, Outreach and Advocacy Manager, Outdoor Industry Association

The outdoor industry understands that our country’s amazing national outdoor recreation system is foundational to the growth and success of our businesses. Unfortunately, lawmakers still don't get it, and many believe that closing parks, cutting funding and reducing access is the answer. This session will give you an overview of Outdoor Industry Association’s multi-year campaign to educate decision-makers at all levels about the economic benefits of outdoor recreation.  Join us to learn how you can “Take it Outside” be an industry champion and deliver our positive and powerful message.

The video recording of this session is free for OIA members and $99 for non-members and is made possible through the generous support of and collaboration with Outdoor Retailer/Nielsen Business Media.
