IMBA’S TIPPING POINT 2014 WAS A CRUCIAL YEAR
e will not know for sure for another year or two, but I suspect that 2014 will be recognized as a tipping point in the reorganization of IMBA in the United States. This reworking of our association has resulted in a much more efficient and more connected structure, one built around our local chapters (180 to date) and arranged in nine regions. IMBA exists for its members, who largely connect and belong to the association through membership in a local chapter. If you do not have access to a chapter at this moment please believe me when I say we hope to change that! Our new structure is yielding unprecedented results on the local level. Our goals remain unchanged—improved access for mountain biking and an unwavering commitment to trail conservation and stewardship activities.

Relocated the national headquarters to a much larger facility in order to accommodate training programs for chapter leaders. Invested in and deployed nine region directors and five associate region directors to strengthen and enhance chapter-led efforts. For every $1.00 of shared membership revenue retained at the national level in 2014, $2.40 was reinvested in direct local chapter support. Together with local chapters, nationwide membership reached an all-time record high.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that mountain bike advocacy would be doomed without an effective organizational structure. Growing IMBA’s membership is important, but it’s not the end game. The real end game is for IMBA to function as an effective national (and, yes, international as well) association that connects mountain bikers and allows them to ride and steward the land. The enemy of such access is apathy. Be a link in the chain—join your local IMBA chapter, or help us create a new one where you live and ride. See You on the Trails,
— Mike Van Abel, IMBA Executive Director

BY THE NUMBERS
IMBA’S FINANCIAL HEALTH IN 2014 Contributions, including individual membership and corporate support, showed strong year-over-year growth in 2014, and IMBA added 32 new chapters to the fold. Two low-interest loans from philanthropists allowed IMBA to increase its investment in critical program services including regional staff–often shared positions with chapters– and funded key programs in trail development, community technical assistance, land manager training, grants and research. As a non-profit charitable organization, IMBA partners with thousands of donors and members to invest in both local and national priorities: improving quality of life, creating bicycling opportunities for kids, putting more trails on the ground and reaching more land managers than ever before to improve mountain bike opportunities. IMBA will continue to invest in programs that create, protect and enhance great mountain bike experiences. With your support, we can do even more in 2015. Financial information presented in this report is based on IMBA’s audited financial statements. For more information please visit imba.com
