The Theme of the 2018 NOHVCC Annual Conference is Building on Success! Everyone in the OHV community has faced adversity - restrictions, closures, lost opportunities, etc. But, it is important to remember that progress has been and is being made towards NOHVCC's goal of “Creating a Positive Future for Responsible OHV Recreation.” Michigan is the perfect state to showcase our theme of Building on Success. Michigan features nearly 4,000 miles of trails and routes for OHV use plus many other opportunities - some of which you can sample during the Mobile Workshop. The Cycle Conservation Club of Michigan is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Much progress has already been made, so now it is time to Build on Success. With NOHVCC, it is also time to Build on Success. There have been big changes in the last year, but NOHVCC must keep moving forward without letting momentum slip. Please join us in Grand Rapids August 14-18 and be a part of OHV recreation's positive future - all while recognizing those who got us to where we are today!

What to Expect:

As usual, you can expect great presentations, networking time and a lot of fun.  These joint conferences bring together the best and brightest in the OHV community – including enthusiasts and land managers - and provide the perfect opportunity to gain and share insights on issues, hurdles and successes that have occurred since we last met in New Hampshire.  For any who may attend for the first time, expect to learn a lot, meet a ton of great people, and to share your insights as well.

Click here for a draft preliminary schedule.  As you might imagine we are still in the process of selecting talented and knowledgeable presenters, but we do have some information.  Anyone who has a long approval process can use the draft to secure approval for travel.  Of course, the draft will receive updates as we move forward, but this version should give you a good idea of what we have planned.

The NOHVCC Board of Directors and staff is excited about putting together a great conference that will seem familiar and new at the same time.  We have already been working with local partners and are seeking presenters for both conferences.  We will use this page, the NOHVCC newsletter and other communications tools to keep the conferences on your mind – but please put the dates on your calendar now.  You will not want to miss this opportunity.
