Office of Outdoor Recreation Industry Development
The Department of Business and Economic Affairs is the lead economic development and marketing arm of New Hampshire state government. The addition of the Office of Outdoor Recreation Industry Development (ORID) was established to support New Hampshire’s diverse outdoor economy and connect our state’s world class outdoor assets to broad economic development strategies such as workforce and business recruitment. In a post-COVID world and the new remote work environment, these connections will take on even more importance. The new outdoor recreation office and its director will put exclusive focus on this effort and will be fully integrated into our department, working with our economic and tourism development teams and partnering with our growing outdoor industry.
