Business Alliances Workshop
Friday, November 3
1 p.m.—5 p.m.
Snow King Resort
State-wide and regional business alliances such as Colorado Outdoor Business Alliance and the Pikes’ Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance are successfully harnessing industry voices to advance public land issues. Other models, such as Business for Montana’s Outdoors and the Yellowstone Gateway Business Coalition, include business interests outside the outdoor recreation industry. Taken together, such alliances offer a powerful tool that is greatly underleveraged in contemporary conservation: coalitions of business interests that advocate on behalf of public lands.
This workshop features representatives from successful business alliances from around the country discussing how they were formed, the obstacles they’ve overcome and how they are applying their stakeholder coalitions for collective impact. The panel discussion will be followed by break-out groups who work with alliance representatives on how to build business alliances in their regions, and how they can take specific action to advance change.
