Membership works slightly different at each level of IMBA Local. While all memberships will be processed by IMBA for a fee of $15 per member per year, the level of support your organization receives from IMBA varies.
Chapters will receive the full suite of membership and retention services. This includes utilization of IMBA’s yearly membership drives that provides incentives for mountain bikers to join or renew their membership to Local organizations. Your Local members will also receive premium benefits for joining or renewing at different levels through our national partners. IMBA will also automate your organization’s renewal reminders to ensure that your expiring members are renewing.
This is a perfect option for organizations that don’t want to deal with the membership process. Free up your volunteers to focus on advocacy, trail building, community engagement and riding bikes.
Co-branded Affiliates will have access to IMBA’s yearly membership drives and incentives as well as automated reminders to your members for membership renewals and IMBA’s branding.
This is a great option if your organization isn’t ready for the Chapter level and doesn’t need to utilize 501(c)3 nonprofit status.
White-labeled Affiliates will have access to their membership through IMBA’s database and will be able to run their own separate membership drives and automate their own renewal reminders for their members.
This is a great option for high-functioning organizations that have the volunteer support to manage the day-to-day membership process.
Supporting Organizations have the option to choose our volunteer management services and/or access to IMBA University but don't necessarily need to manage membership with IMBA.

I’ve seen the bubble of the coal industry and how the decline of the industry has devastated many of the communities surrounding my hometown. Helping communities and chapters with similar issues look past their economic hardships and embrace the natural assets that surround them is what drives me. Mountain biking changed my life and I believe it can change the lives of countless others if given the opportunity.Meet our team
