ATV Manitoba held their first Club Summit on Saturday, March 17th, in conjunction with the 2018 Annual General Meeting. The summit was a relaxed event providing ATVMB Club executives with the opportunity to network with the ATVMB Board of Directors and hear from Oksana Buhel of the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV), who gave a presentation on Club/Federation relationships and how we are connected to the bigger national picture through the All Terrain Quad Council of Canada (AQCC) and COHV.
The Annual General Meeting followed the Summit in the afternoon when members heard from Blair McTavish of the Department of Sustainable Development; Chris Ewen, Mayor of Ritchot; Yvonne Rideout, Executive Director of Snoman; and Bob Lagasse, MLA for Dawson Trail.
Members also participated in the annual election of officers and we are happy to report that we now have a Board of 11 directors who are all eager to serve as the leaders of the ATV community in Manitoba. Thanks to all directors for volunteering their time and expertise to assist ATVMB in building the ATV trail network in Manitoba and encouraging safe responsible riding on our trails.
We would also like to extend thanks to departing board members Calvin Egg, Chris Frazao and Natalie Sever for volunteering their time to serve on the ATVMB Board of Directors. We wish each of them continued success in the future.
Please join us in congratulating the new ATVMB Board of Directors:
