got a new job at the Outdoor Industry Association in Boulder, CO and started in early September as their Advocacy Manager.
Lindsay is the Advocacy Manager for the Outdoor Industry Association in Boulder, CO, where she works on a variety of recreation and trade policy initiatives on behalf of Association members: outdoor retailers, suppliers, and manufacturers. Her role will include the development of a membership engagement plan and advocacy trainings to directly involve outdoor companies in policy through media, events, congressional visits, and OIA’s political action committee.
Previously, Lindsay spent four years with the Appalachian Mountain Club in Portland, ME as the Maine Policy Associate where she focused on research and lobbying on state-level conservation policy and building and managing a coalition of businesses, non-profits, and government entities committed to getting more Mainers active outdoors. She served as the first chair for the Maine Outdoor Coalition and developed and coordinated the statewide Great Maine Outdoor Weekend.
During her time in Portland, Lindsay was on the board of directors for both the Friends of Baxter State Park and Portland Greendrinks.
Lindsay holds a BA in Geology and Environmental Sciences from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY.
