Greg Mumm Departs As BlueRibbon Coalition Executive Director

POCATELLO, ID (November 2, 2013) -- Greg Mumm announced today that he will no longer be serving as the Executive Director of the BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC). BRC is a national nonprofit, grassroots advocacy organization championing recreational access for a diverse array of users including motorized recreationists, equestrians, mountain bikers, pilots and boaters. Mumm has served as Executive Director since 2006, during which BRC achieved significant victories involving the Forest Service Roadless Rule, eliminating the Ninth Circuit's limitations on nonfederal parties' involvement in environmental lawsuits, and in protecting and enhancing access to areas ranging from Yellowstone National Park to the Superior, Eldorado and San Juan National Forests.

"I have loved every minute of my time as Executive Director," said Mumm. "It was my honor to serve BRC and the many fine folks I met throughout our country. I will cherish the memories and experience I have gained and remain committed to addressing the interests of the recreation community," Mumm concluded. "We truly thank Greg for his tireless efforts on behalf of BRC," said John Parrinello, President of the BRC Board.  "We will miss him and wish him the best as we move ahead conducting the business of BRC," Parrinello concluded.
