The answer is simple, there is power in numbers! If you want United Four Wheel Drive Associations to be able to continue to make a positive impact on national legislation and in turn on your local level, we need the support of the entire four wheel drive enthusiast community. While what you do on the local level is affective, local legislators follow the lead of the national legislators and we represent you on that level. The success that you have had has been because of the legislation that is passed and the work that is done on a national level to set that precedent. Without national representation those successes will not continue.
Formed in 1976, United Four Wheel Drive Associations has seen its share of ups and downs, good and bad times. Any organization that has been around for over 35 years will tell the same story. What is unique about UFWDA is that we are still the only International Organization that represents you, the 4 x 4 enthusiast, only. United Four Wheel Drive Associations is here to represent you on the issues that impact your lifestyle.
Whether you are interested in parks or private lands, UFWDA can benefit you. The Anti-access groups are very well organized and work very hard to close the areas where you enjoy your sport. It is imperative that we have ONE National and United voice that represents you! You can be involved as little, or as much as you like. Simply joining makes a great difference. Let your voice be heard.
Join today and become part of the collective voice!
