Joining IMBA
« on: December 26, 2007, 06:56:25 PM »
Are we, as a club, a member of the IMBA?  When I went to the site to join, there was an Affiliate Club Membership option, which says:

Quote
IMBA Membership - Club

Mountain biking's greatest access stories often involve local clubs partnered with IMBA. As a global, grassroots network of more than 500 affiliated clubs and organizations, we improve riding oppotunites for mountain bikers.

IMBA provides many benefits targeted on helping local groups like yours be more effective. Here's the list: IMBA Affiliated Club Benefits and Programs

Club membership costs $30 per year for clubs with less than 100 members and $60 per year for clubs with more than 100 members.

Does that mean I need to join in a different way, or I just still join as an individual?  I'm pretty sure it's the latter, I'm just making sure beforehand.  I assume the club is a member, but club members join individually.  Correct?

Thanks,

~S

Swamp is an affiliated club, but if you choose to join IMBA (which I think is a great idea!), you will join as an individual.

Thanks for the confirmation.  I plan on joining, for sure.

I joined IMBA a few years ago. In joining, your supporting the Nations biggest advovates for MTBing. You may not have the close knit club feel that SWAMP has, but you'll support an organization that fights for more trails. I love being a member of both. 
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

I'll take them but keep all the pink ones for your car.  They look better on that white Nissan of yours anyway.    ;D ;D
