  • One landowner living near a national forest or Bureau of Land Management property that is used extensively for recreational off-highway vehicle activity;
  • One producer or one grazing permittee on public lands from the farming or livestock industry;
  • One person from the off-highway motor vehicle industry;
  • One off-highway motor vehicle user;
  • One hunter or angler;
  • One quiet recreationalist, such as a hiker, backpacker, birdwatcher, equestrian, mountain biker, rock climber or archaeological enthusiast; and
  • One member with expertise in injury prevention or treatment.
