Kelsey Roseth and Calvin Vick received this year’s Madson Fellowships. The fellowship is an annual grant program through OWAA that funds continuing education for outdoor communicators, both members and nonmembers.
In honor of OWAA’s 90th birthday, Outdoors Unlimited asked five past presidents, each representing a different decade, to talk about their year in office and what they hope for the organization in the future.
Tim Cahill, a founding editor of Outside magazine and a prolific adventure writer, received honorary membership to OWAA following his keynote address at the 2016 annual conference in July in Billings, Montana.
Last fall, OWAA distributed a new 23-question member benefit survey to all its members in an effort to collect feedback on topics like how member benefits are used, challenges faced in the outdoor communication industry and our annual conference.
