    The starting salary range of this job should be reason enough for everyone to be an IMBA member.....

    Someone that would take that job for the mid 20's had better be in bad health with bad teeth to take advantage of the bennies.
    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    I wonder how much flexibility they have in the 'upper range' of that salary...I got really excited about the position until I read that starting salary. On the other hand, I would actually be getting paid for what I've currently been doing for free locally.....

    Not that bad , if you want the job

    I know some one who works for the Park Service as an information officer and I think the pay is less than that, he just likes the work. Honestly it doesn't sound like a job to take if you want to buy a three bedroom and an SUV, but I bet who ever takes that job will ride more miles on nicer trails than ten people making a real wage. Oh yea and they will feel like they've done something when they go to bed at night.
    Too bad I ain't got no grant writting skillz, I kinda like Top Ramen.

    I'm assuming you'd be based in Boulder too (location of IMBA). It's not New York City, but something tells me the mid-$20's is something like poverty + $5. Maybe they forgot to mention commissions? or kickbacks from the sale of memberships and trail maps? free stuff from bike manufacturers? or the extra dollars you'd make at your second job?
