Wayne Arseny, current Vice-President and Trail Boss of the Crow Wing Trail Association has been elected as president of Trails Manitoba. As ex-mayor of Emerson, Wayne was involved from the beginning in the development of the Association and the Crow Wing Trail as part of the Trans Canada Trail.
Wayne comes to the position with a depth of experience chairing Rivers West and the Red River Basin Tourism Committee among others. “ I am truly excited about this opportunity to work with all trail groups across Manitoba including the national connection with the Trans Canada Trail. I look forward to the challenges all trail groups face in not only building trails but facing the continued maintenance issues which have cost implications and shortage of monies for volunteers to do alone. Trails are looked at as wanted and needed by the public in a very intune physically fit society we live in now. As president one has to work with all groups… the builders,the users and government. We also need to ensure necessary funding for complete connectivity all across Manitoba.”
