Rural Advocate says Goodbye

I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as I walked out the door of the Center for Rural Affairs on August 30.  It was my last day.

After 37 years, the Center will always be a big part of me. And I will always be indebted to all who helped make it the nation’s leading force fighting for the rural and small town way of life.

Chuck Says Goodbye

I had a lump in my throat and a tear in my eyes as I walked out the door of the Center for Rural Affairs on August 30. It was my last day. 

My heart, however, has not left the Center. After 37 years, it will always be a big part of me. And I will always be indebted to the supporters and citizen leaders who have helped make it the nation’s leading force fighting for the rural and small town way of life. 

Center Appoints New Executive Director

Friends, I am pleased to announce a leadership transition at the Center for Rural Affairs. Assistant Executive Director Brian Depew has been named the new Executive Director, effective Sept 1, 2013. Chuck Hassebrook, who shaped the Center for decades through his hard work and leadership, will depart to pursue new challenges.

This transition follows a thorough and rigorous process the Center for Rural Affairs Board of Directors established some time ago to meet this eventuality.
