As we approach the 2021 holiday season, it also time for the Utah ATV Association to hold its first 2-year election. As we discussed earlier in the year It has been decided that a 2-year appointment makes more sense. This is in part due to the time frame that it takes for a person to learn their role when elected and what they are responsible for within the Club.
Below you will find each position that will be filled at the conclusion of this election process. Along with the position you will find a bio(s) for the person(s) nominated. Each of the nominated have agreed to fulfill this two-year commitment if elected. Please take the time to review the bio(s) and contact the nominees with any questions about their qualifications, desire to be elected, or any other topics you wish to discuss.
Remember the elected board is your voice when it comes to Club decisions, activities, events etc. If you have any questions or concerns about the election or the election process, please contact your sitting Vice President Bill Bagshaw.

My name is Vickie Bagshaw. I’m easily recognized by my dog’s, Winter and Summer. I’ve been a member of the club for almost five years and been a member of the board for two years.
I had the honor and privilege of being a police officer (dream career since I was five years old) for almost seven years. While on duty, I sustained some injuries which affected several areas of my body, which has forced me to leave my dream career. As an officer I learned the importance of diplomacy and clear communication. I am a professional first responder, someone that can be depended on in some of the most stressful situations imaginable.
