Connecting and cultivating the Outdoor Industry, OOA started in 2014 to gather together people in the outdoor industry including entreprenuers, companies, manufacturers, designers, sales reps, designers, marketers, PR, graphic designers, etc. Our mission/goals are networking, education, job information and advocacy. We meet every other month on the second Wednesday to network, hear a keynote speaker, a spotlight non-profit and of course drink beer and chat about our latest outdoor adventure. OOA exposes our members to local partners like Bend Outdoor Worx, EDCO, Business Oregon, SBDC. Sponsors include US Bank, Karnoff Peterson, Gear Fix and BBSI. We have annual memberships for individuals and companies. OOA is run by a 14 member volunteer board and has partnership with EDCO providing a Key Industry Coordinator.
