The United Snowmobile Alliance (USA) formally announced its existence last week, though rumors of its creation have been percolating behind the scenes throughout the summer and fall. It is made of of several state associations which have splintered off of the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA), predominantly in the Northeast but now including a few more states.
The first formal meetings of the organization were held November 8-9.
Here is the press release from the organization:
National Snowmobile Organization Formed: United Snowmobile Alliance
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 12, 2018: We are pleased to announce the formation of a new national organization that will focus its efforts and resources on the needs of the snowmobile community at the local, state and national levels.
The United Snowmobile Alliance goals will be accomplished through strong communication and experienced leadership coming from the states involved. Modern business and financial practices, along with transparent accountability, will be the backbone of the group which is built on a ground up foundation. The member states are committed to the success of this organization by their commitment to transparent and professional management of the organization.
With well over 100,000 state association members the United Snowmobile Alliance represents the majority of state association member snowmobilers in the United States.
Our purpose will be to utilize a proactive and collaborative approach to support and grow snowmobiling throughout the US and to be a resource to each other and those in a position to further snowmobiling initiatives throughout the world.
Our strength will be based on a reciprocity of vast knowledge, depth of leadership, internal and external networking, legislative grassroots skills, and building a national alliance that represents all aspects of the snowmobile community.
We invite state snowmobile associations to partner with the USA and actively participate in building a national organization with purpose and a vision.
