Membership Update

We are nearing the completion of our integration of all data into www.Membee.com. Once completed, we will be able to manage all our Clubs, Individual, Premium and Business Members from one platform. Additionally our SFWDA events and communications can be managed from Membee. Our Membership team will be communicating with each of our club leaderships shortly to facilitate the renewal process for 2015.



We attended the annual North America Motorized Recreational Council on November 3, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. This meeting was hosted by Del Albright during the SEMA show. Also participating were Greg Griffith and Dave Logan. A wide variety of reports from Blue Ribbon Coalition, NAXJA, California Association of 4WD Clubs, National Off Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (www.nohvcc.org) and a variety of snow mobile and other conservation groups. Of particular interest was some resource information from NOHVCC on land use management practices and maintaining sustainable trails.
