NCDEA IS ON THE MOVE ON BEHALF OF THE NATION’S

7000 CONSERVATION DISTRICT EMPLOYEES!

 

The NCDEA Board met for their Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California in February in conjunction with the NACD Annual Meeting.  The board members were active participants coordinating conservation tours, hosting a district employee reception, moderating break out session, managing a professional development workshop and organizing the NCDEA annual partnership luncheon. 

 

During their business meetings while in Anaheim, the NCDEA board approved their latest strategic plan that includes action items to:

§  insure a better communication network for the membership

§  to distribute more online training opportunities and success stories

§  to collaborate with partners to assist in developing and strengthening state partnerships 

 

To better keep you informed and to also provide for you a venue for communication and feedback the NCDEA board will coordinate a rotation of regional conference calls open to state employee association presidents/contacts or other members who would like to take the opportunity to discuss and share ideas and request information.  We, your NCDEA board members, will be participating on the calls to offer you a chance to serve on NCDEA Committees and to become more oriented to the professional network to which you belong.  

Your Regional Representatives will keep you updated and send you the conference call numbers.

The schedule is planned as follows:

April 23                       North Central              Representative: Suzanne Ebright, Michigan

May 28                        South Central              Representative: Jeanette Kennedy-Hale, Arkansas

June 25                        North East                   Representative: Tim Thomas, New Jersey

July 16                         South West                  Representative: Jeri Trebelcock, Wyoming

August 27                    Northern Plains           Representative: Rhonda Vetsch, N. Dakota

September 24             South East                   Representative: Brian Hacker, Kentucky

October 22                  Pacific                         Representative: Carolyn Kelly, Washington State

November 19              National Call

All call times will be 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

 

Your availability for these dates will be flexible. If you or another state employee association contact is not available for the date scheduled for your region, please do not hesitate to join us whenever the date is suitable.  We eagerly look forward to your participation! 

 

Mark your calendars for July 23.  NCDEA in partnership with NRCS, NACD, and NASCA will be hosting a soils health training workshop in conjunction with the NACD Summer Meeting scheduled to be held in Indianapolis.  Registration information will be available within the next two weeks. 

 

As your NCDEA representative, I continue to meet with the National Conservation Partnership each quarter: National Association of Conservation Districts, National Association of Soil Conservation Agencies, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and National Resource Conservation &Development Councils. Your National Conservation District Employees Association is a member of a team that works toward a conservation delivery that cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world.
