NCTA 2007 Progress Report

The North Country Trail Association reports: We have moved through the holiday season and into a new year. It's important to celebrate all that has been accomplished on and for the North Country National Scenic Trail in 2007. We've had a great year! We've made tremendous strides in many areas. Here are a highlighted few:
  • 31% increase in our volunteer hours accrued on the Trail, totaling 43,599.40 hours between October 2006 and September 2007
  • Funded $16,580 in great volunteer-generated Field Grant projects
  • Major progress in route planning in the MN Arrowhead region and the Adirondack Park
  • Regional trail management staff has taken trail planning and partnership building to a new level
  • Ongoing Trail development & improvements in every state
  • New interest in connecting with the Long Trail in Vermont
  • Our chapters are more active and viable
  • We've participated in more outreach events than ever before
In 2008 and beyond the Association's focus will include, but not be limited to, four strategic initiatives:
  • Membership-reach at least 4600 members-one for every mile-by the end of 2008
  • Development-increasing and diversifying revenues
  • Recognition-doing a much better job of telling our story and increasing public awareness of the Trail, and
  • Trail Development-applying a project management approach to identifying and prioritizing key Trail segments for completion.
As we explore how to best promote and actualize these basic ingredients for the Trail's overall success and permanence on the landscape we will need your support and help!
