Red River Valley Association
Strategic Plan
Executive Summary


The Red River Valley Association's mission is to promote, support, encourage and assist in the development of the land and water resources within the Red River Basin to the beneficial use of all area citizens. This will be accomplished through the strength of its membership, effective political pressure and knowledge of the various systems and procedures to obtain federal, state and local support.


The RRVA's objectives are to promote, encourage and assist in the development of the Red River Valley and those of its tributary streams by:


The RRVA was founded in 1925 as a not for profit, membership organization and remains as that today. With lobbying as its primary function its strength is from the voice of its members. Information is a powerful tool and the RRVA will insure its membership, the public, the media and congressional interests are educated and kept informed. Through these efforts will continued success be realized.


In looking to the future the RRVA will take a two prong approach. While maintaining its traditional role of lobbying for development funding through Congress, the Association will take on an economic development mission to ensure the potential of this region is realized. It is through these two roles that the RRVA will continue to serve the interests of all the citizens in the Red River region.


This strategic plan is a comprehensive document which will ensure the continued development of the land and water resources. It will guide and promote the success of the Association and guarantee opportunities for the citizens of the region into the 21st century.
