How You Can Get Involved

If you're part of the industry, you're part of the force.

A Force for Sustainability

Sustainable business is the business of asking, “How can we do this better?” We are proud to support the outdoor industry’s collaborative efforts to build better products, address shared environmental challenges, and drive impact reduction in the manufacturing of outdoor apparel, footwear and gear. We don’t have all the answers, but we’re not shying away from asking the questions.

Get Smart

A Force for Policy

From recreation access to balanced trade, the issues that affect our businesses and our customers are constantly on the dockets of local, state and federal state houses. OIA educates and lobbies lawmakers to pass sound policies that support our industry’s growth and viability.

Take Action

A Force for Participation

We come from different backgrounds, find different ways to play outside and work in different--sometimes competing--channels of the industry. But we are all outdoorists. OIA established the Outdoor Foundation to be the driving force behind a massive increase in active outdoor recreation. By working together to expand outdoor access and opportunities, we can ensure a vibrant outdoorist community for generations to come.


A Force for the Future

Skip Yowell Future Leadership Academy is a six-month program developed to prepare, unite and amplify the voice of future outdoor industry leaders and honors Skip Yowell, an industry visionary.
