ORBA ORBA Hosts Historic Land Use Summit in Nevada.

On July 14, 2014 The Off Road Business Association in partnership with Carrera Performance Group, LLC hosted an historic motorized recreation advocacy meeting in Sparks, Nevada at the Nugget Casino. Part of the week long Silver State Jamboree event the collaboration of thirty-five OHV leaders yield a conversation concerning developing a Washington DC presence that exclusively represents the needs of Off Highway Vehicles. The participant’s storyboard spelled out the first details of what the needs of the community included, as well as how it would be funded, and how the effort will communicate with the existing associations that are currently serving the regional needs of off-roaders. The Off Road Business Association followed up the Land Use Summit with its quarterly Board Meeting and voted to fund development of a business plan that would outline how to accomplish the ideas agreed upon at the Summit.

Plans are underway to follow up this Summit and build a comprehensive strategy to work toward dedicated Washington DC representation for the motorized recreation community. Following the successful protection of the Hammers trails in Johnson Valley California, the group believes that the time is right for off-roaders to have a voice in our nations capital on a daily basis. ORBA will present the business plan for review to the Summit participants with the hope to gain approval of the plan by the end of the year.
