May 2001, the BlueRibbon Coalition Board of Directors appointed me as the first (part time) BlueRibbon Ambassador. The name Ambassador was chosen because it represents what I will be doing -- a special delegate on a diplomatic mission. Unfortunately, as of July 2018, BRC illegally terminated my contract. I am no longer affiliated with or in support of BRC.
I am still available to assist clubs and individuals with land use, access and organizational development issues.
Feel free to take advantage of these services.
WORKSHOPS: If you'd like help with local issues, access, land use, membership, getting involved, understanding bureaucracy, etc., I am able to put together a customized workshop for your group/club. Drawing on my articles and writing, combined with 35 years in the land use/access arena, you will find these sessions invaluable.
Here are some topics I can help you with online:
|Avoiding Burnout in Clubs and Groups|
|Building up a club or group.|
|Facilitation Help and Training|
|Getting involved with government (agencies).|
|Grant Money -- Getting money to fix up a trail or keep a trail open.|
|How to Get Involved in the Public Lands Process|
|Leadership Training and Volunteer Motivation|
|Meetings, conventions and workshops.|
|Recreational Trails Program grant money|
|Rig modifications and questions.|
|Understanding the anti-access radicals.|
|Where to look for answers about multiple use issues.|
