The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) announced back on January 12th that Russ Ehnes had expressed his intent to leave his position as Executive Director, effective June 1st, 2017. Ehnes, who has held that position for nearly 20 years, will be shifting gears to other opportunities in off-highway vehicle recreation, including managing the Bull Run Guest Ranch, near Great Falls, Montana.
“I am still fully committed to the mission of NOHVCC, and extremely proud of what we have all managed to accomplish,” said Ehnes. “NOHVCC is in a great position right now. Its mission has incredible momentum, with many positive initiatives, thanks to a large and energetic team effort by the NOHVCC staff and Board of Directors. The initiatives include the “Great Trails” resource book, Great Trails Workshops, trail design projects of NOHVCC Management Solutions (NMS), and our partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on its National Motorized Recreation Action Plan.
The Executive Director is the Chief Executive Officer of NOHVCC and works with the Board of Directors, staff, and partners to provide the leadership and direction necessary to fulfill the mission and vision of NOHVCC and continue the growth and positive reputation of the organization. This position leads a coalition of volunteers, staff and partners dedicated to advancing OHV recreation.
