Chapters and Regions

IMBA chapters are our primary local affiliates—they are closely connected to IMBA and enjoy a level of support from IMBA staff. A chapter's members are automatically members of IMBA. Watch this brief video for a great overview of what a chapter is and what the benefits are.

Non-chapter clubs are part of IMBA's network of supporting organizations. They build trails, organize events and advocate for bike access around the world. Your local mountain bike organization can join IMBA's network—or renew your partnership—by signing up at the supporting organization membership page.

Chapter development is coordinated by IMBA's Regional Directors. These IMBA paid professional staffers operate in distinct territories — currently IMBA has regional staff positions in the Great Lakes, Pacific, Rocky Mountain, Upper Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest regions of the USA. Send a message to info [at] imba [dot] com to learn more. Additionally, Regional Leadership Councils coordinate our efforts and expand our reach by working closely with the Regional Directors.
