Outdoors NSW appoints new CEO
The Outdoor Recreation Industry Council of NSW & ACT (Outdoors NSW), the peak industry association for the outdoor education and recreation sector, has recently appointed Lori Modde as the new CEO, with the departure of Dr Amanda Lloyd.
Ms Modde comes to Outdoors NSW from Sydney Olympic Park Authority, where the appreciation of the Outdoors in education, recreation and therapy is very well understood.
She hopes to collide both her worlds in this position; the knowledge, understanding and potential that Industry Associations can provide to their communities of interest with the customer centricity focus that provide destination and business prosperity.
Outdoors NSW is currently rolling out an initiative called “The Great Aussie Camp Out At Home”, which sees families camping out in their own backyard, living room or balcony.
The original "Great Aussie Camp Out" program has been modified to introduce the “At Home” element due to everyone staying home and reducing COVID-19 transmission in the community, flattening the curve and striving for the end of the epidemic.
