PARK CITY, UT (BRAIN)—The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and to help mark the occasion National Park Service director Mary A. Bomar will give a keynote address at the organization's 2008 World Summit.
One of the U.S. government's most senior officials charged with managing federal lands, Bomar's attendance will provide significant inspiration to IMBA's long-standing stewardship and advocacy work.
As leader of the National Park Service (NPS), Bomar is responsible for 391 sites and a team of 20,000 employees who work to preserve America’s special places. IMBA and the National Park Service are in the fourth year of a formal partnership to consider new opportunities for mountain bicycling on NPS-managed lands.
The 2008 IMBA World Summit will be held in Park City, Utah, June 18-21.
