Seems like they have their act together. Pretty impressive.

So what is NORA and how is NORA different from other OHV organizations?


1) The Ability to Lobby & Opportunity to Re-Educate:
NORA has been created as an S-Corp. (for Profit Corporation) with the primary objective of lobbying on behalf of the off-road industry. Organizations like United Four Wheel Drive Association (UFWDA), Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC) and most other land access organizations are designated as a 501 C3's (non-profits) which are legally unable to lobby.


It seems as though they are bit misinformed, I think they not be aware of the differences between the various non-profits. I also question a FOR PROFIT organization organized by JJUSA.

Haven't looked yet, but I'm inclined to agree with this guy.

I'm sure as a new organization they will have some learning curves. I'm going to hope they are successful. I think with the issues UFWDA is having that we are going to see more similar groups popping up.
