Hi, my name is Hope Daley and I joined the NCDEA Board of Directors as the Southeast Region Director in November 2017. I have worked with the Jefferson Davis County Soil & Water Conservation District in Prentiss, MS since July 2001. Hope serves as the District Administrative Assistant. She is also instrumental in helping NRCS implementing their programs in her office.
She has served as the Area Director, 2nd VP, 1st VP, President, Past President, Treasurer and currently serves as Secretary for the Mississippi Conservation District Employees Association (MCDEA). She also currently serves as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Mississippi Association of Conservation Districts (MACD).
Conservation has been in Hope’s life for many years. She grew up on a farm with cows and lots of crops. Her parents and grandparents instilled in her the importance of conserving your natural resources from an early age.
Hope has been married to Larry Daley since 1988. She has 2 children, Nick and Natalie. Nick is a coach/teacher and is married to Brooke with a son Taylor. Natalie is a grad student majoring in Speech and Language Pathology with a cockapoo named Riggs.
