There is an upgrade occurring this weekend (8/3/2014).  The below from IMBA.

"This coming Sunday night/Monday morning IMBA will be upgrading our database and constituency relationship manager, CiviCRM, to the latest version (4.4.6). There will be an outage for both the US IMBA.com website and CRM during this time but the website and database should be back online at the start of business Monday morning. This update includes a host of bug fixes and feature enhancements that will become the foundation for organization and chapter related functionality upgrades which will be rolled out in the coming months such as auto-renewing memberships/contributions, tracking of volunteer efforts, mail enhancements, and more. We have been testing the upgrade of our system to CiviCRM 4.4.6 in a development environment and backups are kept for ensuring data integrity. The basic user interface and general functionality will remain very familiar, so there shouldn't be a learning curve to using the new version."

As in years past, membership in HMBA and IMBA were included in the Breakdown (Epic) fee.  Was this the same this year or are they individual fees now.  I have not received anything from IMBA in awhile.

In past years you could join HMBA/IMBA while registering for the Breakdown.  But it wasn't included in the cost of the Breakdown, you had to pay for both the Breakdown and membership.  We didn't dot that this year, as it just adds another step (and more time) in the process.  It is best to join HMBA-IMBA through the IMBA membership tools (online, or reply to mailed membership renew requests).

If want to check you membership status, go to [size=78%]www.IMBA.com[/size]

In the upper right hand corner there will be a log in section.  Log in using you email address (normal tools available if you forgot your password).

You can also call the IMBA membership team at 1 888 442 4622 or email at membership@imba.com

Also, note that if you are not getting emails or mail from IMBA reminding you to renew.  You can check your contact settings on the IMBA Website.  Once you sign in, click on "edit account"  Under communication preferences, check to make sure that you have this set up the way that you want, but note that if you select to not receive emails and mailings, or select to not solicit for membership, then you will not receive membership renewals.

As a former member who let his HMBA membership lapse without renewing, I thought I'd throw is out there:  I'll be renewing my membership this year.  I had many reason or not renewing for years: I don't ride as much, I did my share of trail building, I've donated to the cause, etc.  I have done a couple weekend road trips this year, riding many trails that HMBA have built and maintained.  they are doing a great job making trails for everyone to ride (many of them free).  I remember riding trails in southern Indiana back in the day when Youngs Creek, Shirley Creek,Gnaw Bone camp and Nebo (then known as Knobstone) were the go to trails and you weren't sure from one ride to the next what you were going to get.  Since HMBA started building and maintaining trails, places like BCSP , Ft Ben, SWW,  Obannon, Etc are go to trails for a lot of riders.  These trails are well groomed an very well taken care of by people giving their time and experience to give us sweet places to ride.  Well worth the cost of membership!
