Director’s Message

Tom Salzer2018 was a tremendous year for NCDEA and 2019 is looking even better!

Every region is represented by a regional director.  Your regional director is a key element in facilitating the exchange of information between conservation district professionals and their national association.  Some regions (like the Pacific Region) have a director and an alternate director.  This helps provide resiliency as NCDEA continues to expand services and deepen engagement with members.

I also fulfill other roles through my involvement with NCDEA:

  • I represent NCDEA on the NACD Communications Committee and on the NACD Tribal Outreach and Partnership Resource Policy Group.
  • I chair NCDEA’s Communications Committee and sit on the Strategic Planning Committee.

Every conservation district employee in the United States and territories is a member of NCDEA. Our 7,000 members bring a vital component to the table in regional and national discussions.

On behalf of NCDEA, I appreciate your interest in the impact of the association on the national level and hope that you’ll become more engaged as we work together to make sure the needs of our local communities are met by conservation programs and services.
