I attended the IMBA Great Lakes Summit in a conference room at the Heartwood Center here in Crosby yesterday, hosted by IMBA Midwest Regional Director Hansi Johnson.  The promo blurb:

Schedule: Great Lakes Summit at IMBA Cuyuna Lakes Ride CenterThis season our Summit is focused on IMBA Chapters and clubs looking to become Chapters.  So if you are either an existing Chapter or are with a club that is seriously looking to become an IMBA Chapter please pre-register.  All other clubs or individuals feel free to contact IMBA Midwest Regional Director Hansi Johnson if you are interested in attending.

The Summit is a one day event.  We will be meeting and discussing various advocacy topics and issues that pertain to the IMBA Chapter Partnership.  Later in the afternoon we will ride the Cuyuna trails and then we will have a social at Ya Betcha’s Bar & Grill later in the evening.

    Hansi Johnson wrote in his June 18 report:

    I have set June 20th as the date where I will list the top 5 goals I have prioritized. I have also decided to start sending out invites for the Regional Leadership Council this week as well. So by the end of June not only do I hope to have a start on some great big picture regional goals, I will also have solid input from my Chapter leaders on how to gain those goals. To me this was history in the making, we came into the meeting as individual clubs and IMBA Chapters, and I truly felt that we left the meeting as a regional team.

    I’ll see if he has an update.
