Dakota Resource Council director retires: Trechock took organization to next level


Dakota Resource Council Director Mark Trechock has spent 18 years helping people find solutions to community problems, particularly in the energy and agricultural industry. While he will miss it, he said it's time close that door of his life and open a different one.

"I enjoy my work, but it is time to let someone else do it," he said.

Trechock started as the DRC director in December 1993. He decided he would retire when he turned 65, which he did in January.
