"Creating a Positive Future for OHV Recreation"

National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council's (NOHVCC) vision is of a nationwide system which addresses the issues and opportunities facing people concerned with creating a positive future for off-highway vehicle recreation. NOHVCC goals for the next three years:

1. Ensure NOHVCC is widely recognized as a resource and support system for promoting responsible OHV use.

2. Promote the behavior of OHVers to that of enthusiasts who are respectful of other trail users and who are environmentally responsible.

3. Foster a widespread image of OHV recreation as family oriented and as a responsible group maintaining sound community ethics.

4. Expand and sustain the network of OHV enthusiasts and supporters who promote responsible enjoyment of the sport.

5. Attract, train, involve, support, recognize, and retain large numbers of volunteers dedicated to promoting a positive future of the sport.

6. Promote balanced environmental education.
