Mr. William Hodge is the ACE representative for the Alabama Association of RC&D Councils. Alabama has nine RC&D Councils and a State Association which basically serves as an umbrella (non-profit) to assist all of the individual Councils. Alabama RC&D Councils depend on the leadership abilities and unique skills within the communities they serve. It is local people identifying their problems and opportunities and dealing with them, with a little help from the government and from others. A significant accomplishment of Alabama RC&D’s has been the rekindling of community spirit. Many worthwhile projects have been undertaken and accomplished throughout the state through the assistance of the Alabama Association of RC&D Councils.
There are so many ways to describe RC&D; but in Alabama we believe it is basically people doing things for other people. The nine Alabama RC&D Councils and the State Association are proud of their accomplishments; but believe there is much more that can be done to make our communities a better place to live, work, and play. The Council continues to be dedicated to protecting, enhancing, and developing the state’s natural and human resources.
