Greetings fine people, feels like time for another update on all of the exciting progress!
The UMBA board has been busy over the last few weeks assembling all the working pieces of a non profit society. Needless to say it has been a learning experience for us all, but also very rewarding to see things come together! As of this week we have:
- Secured an insurance policy.
- Opened a bank account.
- Nearly completed a website equipped with PayPal for our membership platform.
- Entered into discussion with both UFN and the BCF regarding stewardship / possible construction of sanctioned trail networks.
- Secured administrator status on Trailforks in order to make much needed updates.
Soon we will be offering memberships to the public and as things return to normal, resuming weekly rides and community work parties.
A big shout out to the volunteers that came out last week to help remove all of the first generation features and debris from the trails. Providing active stewardship of existing trails will be the cornerstone of building our relationship with local landholders!
