NCDEA Past President

Tim Riley


Hello, I am Tim Riley. In September 1991, still on my final leave from 6 years in the United States Marine Corps, I applied, interviewed and accepted a position with something called a conservation district in Dover, Delaware. I had no idea what a conservation district was, but I started this journey of learning exactly what they are on October 1, 1991, and am currently the District Coordinator at that same District: the Kent Conservation District (KCD).

My titles at KCD since joining the staff have included; Administrative Assistant, District Accountant, Equipment Program Manager, Sediment & Stormwater Program Manager, and District Coordinator (since June 1994).

In addition to being the current Past President of NCDEA, I also served terms as President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Northeast Regional Director; as well as President of the Northeast Association of Conservation District Employees (NACDE).

I had the great fortune of being exposed to NCDEA at the first NACD Annual Meeting that I attended in Reno, NV in February 1992. I have proudly followed the activities and progress of NCDEA since then, participating in meetings and serving countless committees; consequently, it appears I have become the official Archivist and unofficial Historian of NCDEA. If you should have any questions regarding NCDEA, how it was created, where we have been, and where we are heading, please don’t hesitate to email me or give me a call.

I am very proud of where NCDEA is today and look forward to participating in and following its progress in the years to come.
