The National Association of Resource Conservation & Development Councils Announces Award to Tombigbee RC&D Council

The National Association of RC&D Councils (NARC&DC) is very pleased to announce that Tombigbee Resource Conservation and Development Council of Tuscaloosa, Alabama has been reauthorized as a Premier member of the NARC&DC Circle of Diamonds program, one of the few RC&D Councils out of 375 to qualify for this elite status.

The NARC&DC Circle of Diamonds program provides a proactive means for RC&D Councils to demonstrate that they are complying with legal requirements and best non-profit management practices. The program has three tiers or levels: Basic, Enhanced, and Premier. By earning Premier level membership, Tombigbee RC&D Council, has clearly demonstrated its ability to adhere to the highest standards of governance and administration and its effectiveness in public outreach and partnership management. The RC&D Council’s policies and practices, as well as its inspiring vision for the future of its community, make it a model for all of us who strive to faithfully serve our communities and be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.

The National Association of RC&D Councils heartily congratulates Tombigbee RC&D, on this well-deserved honor.
