Strategic Plan 2022 – 2027

The NSMBA directors and staff have developed a Strategic Plan for the Organization with input from our members, community stakeholders & land managers.  This plan was created as a planning and directional tool for the NSMBA Board of Directors and Staff and will support and instruct the ongoing work of the NSMBA for the next 5 years.

The Strategic Plan will lead the way for the NSMBA to connect with the community, share resources and offer a time to reflect and reconnect. All of the priorities, objectives and future goals of the organization were all made with the intention and vision of “Trails for All, Trails Forever.”
