The NOHVCC Guidelines for Off-Highway Vehicle Clubs: A Resource Guide to Assist in the Formation, Development and Management of OHV Recreation Enthusiast Clubs
A club can accomplish things that are difficult for one or just a few individuals to accomplish. A club can speak with one voice for a larger group, increasing effectiveness when working with elected officials and land managers. Local presence and knowledge of specific areas and situations allow for credible and constructive comments on land management issues and legislation.
Elected officials and local units of government listen to their constituents. The more constituents an organization represents, the closer elected officials listen.
Clubs also serve as a contact point for land managers, elected officials, media, other organizations, and OHV-oriented businesses.
And, best of all, a club provides camaraderie and fun through excursions, family events, and other activities.
The NOHVCC Guidelines for Off-Highway Vehicle Clubs: A Resource Guide to Assist in the Formation, Development and Management of OHV Recreation Enthusiast Clubs provides information and examples on:
· By-laws and incorporation
· Cash management
· Club names
· Meeting management
· Mission and purpose statements
· Parliamentary procedure
· Problem solving
· Task coordination
The NOHVCC recognizes that most OHV activists are volunteers with many demands on their time. The NOHVCC group development materials provide information and samples to help you build your organizational and collaborative skills and make the most efficient and effective use of your time.
