OIWC Launches First Online Community

Published May 22, 2008

BOISE, ID (BRAIN)—Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC) has launched an Online Membership Community.

This in-depth resource is designed to provide OIWC members with enhanced networking opportunities between the 1,100 OIWC members that work in the outdoor, cycle, snowsports,
paddlesports and adventure travel industries.

The OIWC online member community is a virtual resource where members can connect with, and learn from, other OIWC members. Similar to a Linked-In database, members have the ability to post a profile with as little or as much information as desired and select which information is visible to other members. Additionally, members can edit information, search the member directory and create connections to other members at any time.

"OIWC's membership base has grown significantly in the past few years. Since many of our members are unable to attend trade shows, it was important for us to develop an online community where members can network, meet mentors, discuss professional development topics and more," said OIWC executive director Sally Grimes.
