Club Care Workshops Improve Volunteer Groups
New for 2007, the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew has begun offering Club Care workshops to help IMBA clubs increase their capacity. Over the past decade, the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crews have taught hundreds of grassroots volunteer groups to build better trails. Now, they are taking the next step: building better clubs. IMBA-affiliated clubs across the country have tallied innumerable successes, but many organizations are struggling to take their clubs to the next level -- increasing membership and volunteer assistance, building resources to take on larger projects, and developing new mountain bike leaders. The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew shares techniques that advocacy organizations across the country have used to reach goals, overcome challenges and grow the mountain bike community. This fall, the Crews will be assisting IMBA California's development with club building seminars in the Bay Area, Santa Cruz and Sacramento.
