Dart has coordinated many successes over the years working with local clubs and activists and other organizations.

“I am extremely pleased to add Bill Dart to the ORBA team, as his skills and experience are an excellent complement to our staff.” stated ORBA President and CEO, Roy Denner. “Bill will be overseeing all land use issues for the organization and delegating responsibility to the ORBA team, while he will personally focus on western states.” Denner added. “I am very excited to join the fastest growing off-road vehicle organization in the nation,” Bill Dart stated, “and I look forward to helping accelerate the growth and effectiveness of ORBA. I have the highest respect for the ORBA team, and I look forward to working with the staff and Board of Directors of ORBA, as well as working with other organizations and activists as I have in the past.”
