Christine Hogan is the new BCA president-elect and took over the gavel at the January Board Retreat. Although a transplant from Colorado, she has always considered North Dakota her home and actually chose North Dakota! Her family moved to Minot Air Force Base to follow her father’s Air Force assignment in 1966. When her family moved again three years later, she was in college at NDSU and stayed behind to finish college eventually going on to UND where she completed a law degree.Read More
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.
