Terry Martin, chair of the Upper Republican Natural Resources District (URNRD)board, has been elected president of the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts (NARD).

Martin previously held the vice-president and secretary/treasurer positions in the organization before being elected as president in March.
“I’m looking forward to serving as the president for the state association. This provides a great opportunity to help protect the future of Nebraska’s natural resources,” Martin said.
The NARD board elected Jim Bendfeldt from the Central Platte NRD (CPNRD) as vice-president.
Larry Reynolds from Tri Basin NRD (TBNRD) was elected secretary/treasurer. Reynolds has been a member of the TBNRD Board for 29 years.

The NARD board consists of representation from each of the local 23 NRDs.
The board members meet five times throughout the year and help guide the association and the NRDs in decision making that protects lives, protect property and protects the future of Nebraska’s natural resources.
