The Outdoor Recreation Roundtable announced two new members—Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) and Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals (SORP)—bolstering ORR’s efforts to unify the industry and strengthen its influence.

The two additions bring ORR’s number of member organizations to 31 at a key time when the outdoor industry is unifying around COVID-19 response efforts, issues of access, infrastructure, conservation, workforce and more.

OIA is based in Boulder, CO, with offices in Washington, DC. OIA is the trade association for the outdoor industry and the title sponsor of Outdoor Retailer. OIA unites and serves 1,300 manufacturer, supplier, sales representative and retailer members through its focus on trade and recreation policy, sustainable business innovation and outdoor participation.

SORP has been serving the outdoor recreation profession since 1983. It is the nation’s leading association of outdoor recreation and related professionals who strive to protect natural and cultural resources while providing sustainable recreation access.
