The Regional Council of Rural Counties (RCRC) has announced that Supervisor Nate Beason has been selected as 2nd Vice Chair of the Regional Council of Rural Counties (RCRC) during its Board meeting last week in Sacramento. Headquartered in Sacramento, RCRC is an association of 31 rural counties that advocates before the Legislature, Congress, state and federal government agencies on behalf of rural issues. County supervisors comprise RCRC’s governing board. Supervisor Beason’s selection makes him one of four officers in RCRC. According to RCRC meeting protocol, Supervisor Beason will ascend to First Vice Chair in 2013 and assume the role of Chair in 2014, subject to additional nominations from the floor at annual elections.
“I am honored to have been selected the 2nd Vice Chair of RCRC by fellow rural county supervisors from around the State,” said Supervisor Beason. This position allows me to have a greater role in addressing the many issues that pose challenges in rural counties such as Nevada County.”
“Being in a leadership position with RCRC not only allows me to help shape the direction of the organization, but it keeps me informed on the latest developments from Sacramento and Washington D.C,” Beason added. “Equally as important, Nevada County will have a strong voice in dealing with policy issues affecting rural counties.”
The selection of officers was made at RCRC’s Board of Directors meeting on December 7th in Sacramento. Each officer will be formally sworn into his/her leadership role at RCRC’s Annual Installation meeting on January 18, 2012. In addition to the selection of Supervisor Nate Beason, rural county supervisors elevated two others into leadership roles. Supervisor Kim Dolbow Vann of Colusa County assumes the role of Chair for 2012 and Supervisor Kevin Cann of Mariposa will serve as 1st Vice Chair. RCRC’s current Chair, Supervisor Diane Dillon of Napa County, remains an officer in the position of Immediate Past Chair.
