The Outdoor Sports Valley Board of Directors

The association's board of directors comprises 19 members, all CEOs from the outdoor sports industry. They were elected by member companies in June 2016 for a new 3-year term.

Four members of the previous Board of Directors, now honorary members, decided not to pursue a second term but wanted to continue to play an advisory role and to participate in specific projects as the need arises.

The 2016-2019 OSV Board of Directors is made up of the following individuals:
