A MESSAGE FROM AMY ROBERTS, OIA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

“Many of us in leadership roles today had the good fortune of working with and learning from the incredible leaders and founders in our industry. Those experiences and relationships helped shape my view of the outdoor industry, all that’s been accomplished and the opportunities yet to come our way. I was given an invaluable gift: a community from which to grow. I believe this is why I am where I am today. I encourage you to provide the same opportunity to rising stars at your company by encouraging them to apply to the Skip Yowell Future Leadership Academy .”

-Amy Roberts, OIA executive director
