Robert F. Gorczyk
An active member in the Valley ATV Club, Mr. Gorczyk has helped to organize fund raisers which helped benefit local groups such as the Hallstead Volunteer Fire Department and families that have been struck with tragedy. Mr. Gorczyk's efforts have lead to the growth of two additional OHV Groups, NWORC and the Southern Tier Chapter of the ETA. His support of these groups include GPS/GIS mapping, grant application Assistance, Right of Way Identification, Working with Property Owners, Communication with local governments, and trail maintenance. It is his belief that those who partake in OHV recreation can support our sport by riding responsibly, respecting land owners, and giving back to the community. This effort is of the utmost importance to keep riding areas open, secure new legal riding areas, and preserve the sport for future generations.
As Vice President of Integrated Facility Services, Inc., Mr. Gorczyk has over 10 years of experience in the design and approval of Erosion and Sediment Control Plans, Post Construction Storm Water Management, NPDES Phase II Permitting, General Permits, and Joint Permits.

His professional background also includes surveying, site development design, site grading, horizontal and vertical alignments, and right of way plans. In addition, he has experience in utility coordination, traffic control, construction administration, and inspection. Mr Gorczyk is a certified professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) and is actively serving on the board of the Northeast Pennsylvania Section of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE)
When not working you can find him surfing one of the many OHV oriented online forums, wrenching on his ATV, or out enjoying state forests and private ATV trail systems with his wife Allison. Within the past few years they have visited 8 of the 11 state forests and over a dozen private trail systems in PA and NY. When offered they prefer to camp at the trailhead or along side the trail.
