Message From the President 2014

It has been one of the joys of my life to serve as president of the BCA board of directors for the past three years. As with any volunteer activity that one does with a willing heart, I have received so much more that I have given! Thanks for the companionship and the mentoring to every member who has participated in a BCA outing or an annual meeting potluck, I have enjoyed your company and I have learned something of value from each of you. Thanks to everyone who has served on the board during my term as a board member. Finding a group like BCA with deeply-held shared values and a commitment to work for those values with civility and integrity has been truly inspirational for me.

BCA Member Profile: Craig Kilber

Growing up in Dickinson, North Dakota allowed me the opportunity to explore just about every butte and ravine in the Badlands. From hunting, hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing - yes, it is possible to rock climb on Sentinel Butte - each part of the Badlands offered something different for me to enjoy. For five summers during college, I worked on the Maah Daah Hey trail crew for the US Forest Service. While on the trail crew, I was able to build new trail, maintain existing trail, construct campgrounds, and fight wild land forest fires. It also gave me an appreciation for the Badlands’ rugged environment and all that offers. Although I currently reside in Fargo where I am a Business Development Analyst for InterceptEFT, I spend as much time as I can in the Badlands.
