Grand Rapids, MI August 14-18
It’s 2018. Already. That means it is time to get the 2018 National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council and International Off-Highway Vehicle Administrators Association joint annual conferences on your schedule.
This year NOHVCC and INOHVAA will visit Grand Rapids, Michigan on August 14-18. The conferences will follow the typical schedule that will be familiar to many of you. After preliminary activities on the 14th, the INOHVAA conference will begin sessions on the 15th, a mobile field workshop for attendees of both conferences on Thursday, August 16, joint INOHVAA/NOHVCC sessions on Friday, August 17 and, finally, the NOHVCC conference will conclude with sessions on Saturday and a banquet on Saturday evening.
As usual, you can expect some great presentations, networking time and a lot of fun. These joint conferences bring together the best and brightest in the OHV community – including enthusiasts and land managers - and provide the perfect opportunity to gain and share insights on issues, hurdles and successes that have occurred since we last met in New Hampshire. For any who may attend for the first time, expect to learn a lot, meet a ton of great people, and to share your insights as well.
The NOHVCC Board of Directors and staff is excited about putting together a great conference that will seem familiar and new at the same time. We have already been working with local partners and are seeking presenters for both conferences. We will use this newsletter and other communications tools to keep the conferences on your mind – but please put the dates on your calendar now. You will not want to miss this opportunity
