My association with OWAA. has been beneficial in many ways. The friendships I have developed give me contacts and sources in most areas of the country. The annual conferences are educational and entertaining.
The Excellence in Craft contests have been especially rewarding. I have worked for organizations that placed a lot value on professional recognition. The EIC helped me legitimize my place in the newsroom and also in my current job in state government. Any outdoor communicator would benefit from membership in OWAA.
