Also on Friday, August 5th, Leisure Trends Group will be sponsoring an invite-only OIWC luncheon involving top level women within the Outdoor Industry. The aim of the Roundtable is to provide executive women with a unique opportunity to have open discussions with an intimate group of women leaders who share similar challenges. In addition to roundtable discussions, Moe Carrick of Momentum, INC will be leading this year’s discussion around Authentic Leadership. The session will also include time to network and make connections with other women in the outdoor industry.

On Saturday, August 6th, OIWC will be partnering with Swarmbuilder and Mountain Hardwear to present a Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, hosted at Pierpont Place. All members are welcome to dine, network and listen in to a brief presentation from OIWC outlining plans for 2012 programs supporting advocacy, education and resources.
