Community service has been a large part of my life. As a retired Veteran from the IA Army National Guard, followed up with a recent retirement from the Iowa Department of Public Safety it is my pleasure to serve my remaining two years with the Clinton County Development Association (CCDA) as President of the Board. Our Board of Directors is comprised of many talented and likeminded leaders that come from several different communities in Clinton County. I look forward to and I am excited about our future endeavors. We plan to roll out an online application process later this year which will allow our grant recipients to quickly and easily work on grants within their own organizations, apply for grants and then track the financial status of their grants. The CCDA will also have a new look on our Webpage that we again hope will enhance the users experience and share our organizations goals and accomplishments throughout Clinton County.
