THANK YOU DOUG!

Mr. Doug Thompson, after many years of generous volunteer service, has resigned from the Desert Mountain Resource Conservation and Development Council (DM RC&D) and Eastern Sierra Connect Regional Broadband Consortium (ESCRBC).

Doug has been with DMRC&D since 2006, serving on the Executive Board since 2010.  He has seen the RC&D through crisis, changes, and improvements, and has contributed his time and resources in significant ways with his vision and understanding of potential and possibilities.

Since the foundation was laid through the Broadband Feasibility Study in 2010, and continuing on through the beginnings in 2011, Doug has been active in the Eastern Sierra Connect Regional Broadband Consortium (ESCRBC).

As a local businessman and civic activist, Doug has his hand in many organizations.  He loves the Eastern Sierra and has demonstrated his desire to help it become the best it can be for those who live or visit here.

We thank Doug,  for all he has done for and with Desert Mountain RC&D and ESCRBC, and we wish him the very best. Happy Trails to you, Doug!

THE COUNCIL, THE PROCESS THE PLAN

The RC&D council is the governing body of the RC&D Area and typically is composed of representatives from such organizations as:

             City/County Governments

             Resource Conservation districts

             Businesses

             Educational institutions

             Tribal Governments

             State & Local Agencies

             Environmental organizations
