Madison, WI. – March 17, 2009 - Gayle Snyder has been the face of the Outdoor Reps Association (ORA) as its Executive Director since its incorporation in 1981. Her long and successful run will end on April 1st as she retires.

This summer Gayle looks forward to a complete change of pace. Rather than tending to the details of putting on a trade show, she will have time to tend her garden and get in some good old fishing time at her lake home in Northern Wisconsin. Asked if there's anything that she will miss, she replied: "Of course, I will miss seeing all my friends at the show." It's safe to say that her friends will miss her too!

Gayle will continue in her capacity as the Executive Director of the Midwest Winter Reps Association (MWSRA).

The 2009 ORA Show will be held at Monona Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin, July 8th – 10th.
