Tips for contacting us

Every field in the form below is optional. The more you tell us about yourself and your situation, though, the more we may be able to help you. If you’re asking a question, please provide a context for why you need an answer—it helps if we know where you’re coming from in terms of your experience and situation. We’re as human as you are and, probably like you, we tend to disregard people who ask vague questions or don’t take a moment to describe their situation.

When you submit the form, your information is emailed to all PTBA members with email (over 40 contractors). Individual members will respond at their discretion. Please note that all PTBA members are trail contractors who can be far away from their computers for weeks and even months during the spring, summer, and fall, so response time may be slow during that time.


[Very] limited data usage

We do not sell any part of your data to any other agency, organization, or business. It is for PTBA’s use only, and it is used only in the context of working directly with you. PTBA’s event mailing list is used to notify you of upcoming special events and PTBA’s annual Trailbuilders Conference. Also, remember that all fields are optional. Our privacy policy.
