Since April the Board has had their hands full catching up on the required legal proceedings, filings and paperwork that had been neglected. A great deal of time was spent on revisiting and revising the antiquated by-laws with the help of our western slope CSCB Conservation Specialist Alyssa Clarida. Additionally, back budgets, audit exemption requests, and Long Range Planning documents had to be updated and filed.  All of this with no District staff!

Now that the enormous task of getting back in business is complete, it is time to re-establish the RCCD’s niche in the conservation community. Having an entirely new board is both an advantage and a disadvantage. Free of previous conceptions, the board has the opportunity to find new and innovative ways to implement conservation programs and outreach. It also means that any new efforts must essentially be built from the ground up.
