Same here. I renewed back in July but haven't seen anything yet. I am getting my selected magazine subscription, so that is encouraging.

How can we donate $ directly to HMBA without going through IMBA? The online link on the homepage is expired. Paypal would be awesome. Thanks!

Bump....how do we donate to the HMBA trail fund?

We used to have an online registration, but that looks like it's closed..  Here's a link to a printable form.

http://www.hmba.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=142:hmba-trail-fund-donation-form&catid=3:organization-documents&Itemid=5

FYI.. There is a new online registration for the HMBA Trail Fund here:

http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?EventID=14547

I'll update this in 2012 as well, with next year's donation link.

Thanks!

Ouch! Nearly a year has passed and still no link for Trail Fund donations? :o

I renew my membership every year with my BCBD entry. Last year, right after renewing, I started receiving notices from IMBA that my membership had expired. I emailed IMBA and got them to stop sending the notices, but no membership packet. No big deal. As soon as I renewed this year I started receiving expiration notices again. I suspect the info's getting lost somewhere between HMBA and IMBA.
It would be nice to have an IMBA sticker to show my support, but I'd settle for knowing that I'm still a member.

Note:  IMBA tracks members by email address.  If you have ever been an IMBA or HMBA member and provided your email address, you should be in IMBA's database."

Also if you have ever used a different email address with IMBA you may be in their datebase twice or more (happened with me).  I was getting notices that my membership had expired but it was for the an other email address that I used in the past.

If this happens you can call them (ph 888-442-4622) or email them (Contact at the bottom of the IMBA page) and they can quickly merge your two (or more) files.  You just need to tell them which email address you want to use going forward.  I found it best just to call them, and get it resolved in a minute or two.
 
For them to match your two (or more) files you need to give them all the email address(es) that you used with IMBA in the past OR your mailing address(es) that you have used with IMBA.

Well, none of my other email addresses appear on the IMBA site. Also frustrating: I registered for the BCBD without logging in to BikeReg, so I can't access my registration to verify that I joined HMBA/IMBA (though my total registration fee reflects that I did).
I think I'll just suck it up and pay for another membership, knowing that my $$ is building trails, and in the future I'll join directly from the IMBA site.

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I had been calling IMBA to see where my membership package was (renewed 6/10).  Jennifer Hill at IMBA was very helpful but had limited pull to get the shipping & receiving dept. to get all of the packages out.  She said that there were many other that had been calling so if you are still waiting I would give her a call (ext. 118) and see if she can help.  I finally received my membership package and socks on Friday.  Nice socks and stickers, etc.

Is it best to wait until January 1st to join or does the Membership run from the date you join until your year is up ? Just curious ! Thinking of joining maybe tomorrow.   :D

Thanks gmcttr,,  I am now a member ( I think ) I followed the link to join and it took me to the IMBA. I paid my contribution and I guess I'm now an OFFICIAL HMBA/IMBA member.
I made a contribution to the "2012/2013 HMBA Trail Fund" on Oct. 17th.  Using the "BikeReg.com" site.   I probably done this BUTT backwards. Probably should have joined the Membership first then made the Trail Fund contribution next.  OH Well !!! 
Happy to be able to help a GREAT team and sport.   :D
