The I4WDTA is managed by an appointed Board of Directors. Board Members are volunteers and appointed for a two year term. I4WDTA members may nominate candidates for the I4WDTA Board of Directors. The current Board of Directors consists of Chris Cole, President, Dave Logan, Vice President, Dirk Nagel, Vice President Intl. and Bruce Shallis. The Team is administratively supported by Anne Pence, Vice President Campa Intl.
Chris was born and raised in rural South Africa where his interest and passion in all things 4WD started at an early age. His personal expedition travel experience, military service, academic qualifications including a graduate degree in Adult Education, teaching experience including at universities in South Africa and the USA, combined with his love of all things 4WD enables him to assist in developing the I4WDTA. Chris manages a company that manufactures products for the Department of Defense and also manufactures the Campa All Terrain Trailer. Chris takes every opportunity to use his 4WD vehicles on trails or on longer expeditions to remote destinations.
Dave Logan is the Vice President of the International 4WD Trainers Association (I4WDTA) and a Master Tread Lightly! Trainer. He has 14 years of experience in the development and delivery of training programs. That experience includes providing 4WD drivers training to large international corporations, U.S. government agencies, Military personnel, and recreational 4WD club members. Dave also has his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification. He believes that any day spent in the outdoors is a good day.
Dirk Nagel enjoyed his first Off-road experience in the mid 80's at the white sands proving grounds in Fort Bliss, TX. Dirk has worked in the military and civilian 4WD industry in several countries throughout the world and also has multiple licenses for vehicles including heavy military and civilian trucks and tracked vehicles. For the last two decades Dirk has traveled to remote areas in Europe and the Far East on both dual sport motor cycles and with his 4WD vehicles. Dirk guides Off-road tours and also provides beginner to advanced 4WD instruction to many satisfied clients world wide. As Vice President, International, Dirk’s focus is expanding the I4WDTA throughout Europe and beyond.
Bruce Shallis purchased his first Jeep Wrangler in the early 90’s and that revealed his path that created his home in the four wheel drive community. He transformed his hobby into a sport and a career. Bruce has spent many years trail guiding for Jeep Jamborees, Camp Jeeps and has enjoyed numerous years as an officer in local 4WD clubs. Ten years ago Bruce opened what is now "Rausch Creek Off Road Park" and since then Bruce has turned RCORP into one of the nation's premier off road destinations. Joining I4WDTA was a natural progression for Bruce. Bruce remains committed to teaching proper four wheel drive techniques and helping people safely enjoy their 4WD’s.

On the many Campa expeditions, Anne rides shotgun – mostly because the driver is so passionate about driving his 4WD’s.
