Resource Conservation and Development Councils play an important role in the conservation, development, and utilization of natural resources. RC&D Councils work to improve the general level of economic activity and to enhance the environment and standard of living in all communities. Councils provide a system of rural development to encourage the wise use of natural resources, and improve the quality of life in America. RC&D is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils who work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.

*SAVE THE DATE * Spring New England RC&D Association Meeting - April 23, 2014

The New England Spring Association meeting will be held on April 23.  In an effort to have more people attend we are going to have it via conference call.  The minutes of the 2013 fall conference, 2014 budget and the call in number will be sent out soon.  We are hoping even the councils that are not active will join us.
Please remember to contact your Congressmen regarding RC&D becoming a preferred vender.  This is very important to all of us.  If you have any questions please let me know.
Thank You,
