Governing Board of Directors

At the heart of Rural Resources is its Governing Board of Directors – a dedicated group of elected officials, private business people, community and low-income representatives from throughout our service area. The Board works together to set policy, discuss conditions in the areas in which they reside, and to plan and direct Rural Resources staff to find solutions to problems. With the board’s support, guidance and direction, Rural Resources maintains its responsiveness to the rural communities we serve.

Governing Board meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of every other month beginning in January at our Central Office located at 956 S. Main, Colville, WA. The public is invited and encouraged to attend and public input is welcome.
