TOGETHER WE ARE A FORCE
FOR THE OUTDOOR INDUSTRY

In 2020 our industry’s companies and our world have experienced incredible upheaval. We know that you and your businesses are being tested and challenged. Our job as your trade association is to support and empower you through our programming and services. Our mission is to elevate the collective voice, influence and power of the outdoor industry.


Thriving Business – Advocating for the collective group on policy matters and business imperatives
In 2019, we saved outdoor companies a total $340 million in duties and tariffs on outdoor product imports.

Thriving People – Building an equitable and inclusive outdoors
Our Thrive Outside Community Initiative engages over 16,000 young people, more than 80% of whom are people of color.​ Our advocacy work has supported the creation of 17 state offices of outdoor recreation and the full, permanent funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund ($900 million/year).​

Thriving Planet – Collaborative action to mitigate climate change disruption to our supply chains and to the outdoors
The Climate Action Corps provides guidance, training, tools and discounts that save $10-$50,000, just in the first year of participation.​

Influence

“My company (and I) would lose our collective voice in Washington, D.C., and that voice has yielded tangible results in the last decade.”

Go-to resources

“OIA provides industry research and gives recommendations that we use to influence business strategies and allows the industry to align on direction.”

Membership Pricing

OIA has experienced disruption as a result of COVID-19. In response, we cut our operating budget by nearly 50% while continuing to deliver key programs. But OIA’s future is at risk due to the association’s heavy dependence on trade show royalties at a time when the immediate future of an in-person trade show is uncertain. Those royalties have, effectively, underwritten the majority of OIA’s programming budget. Now we need a new model.

We have developed a dues structure for 2021 that allows you to support your trade association directly so that we can continue to work with you and on your behalf to ensure thriving people, a thriving planet and thriving outdoor businesses.
