On June 14, OOA Board Co-President Mike Wallenfels joined a panel discussion of rising stars and seasoned leaders in the outdoor recreation economy. The panel explored topics related to working in the outdoor industry, from leadership and professional development experiences during a worldwide pandemic to setting boundaries and finding balance. Check out the recap here.

In addition to the valuable insights and advice shared by the panelists, Oregon State University presented information about the new Center for the Outdoor Recreation Economy, including its Outdoor Industry Leadership Certificate.
