John Van den Bergh is a Rural Development Specialist for Rural Community Assistance Corporation (RCAC) in Nevada. He has been employed with RCAC for four years.
Prior to RCAC, John owned and worked at his own construction company for 20 years, which provided grading, utility, and road construction. Following that position, he began working as a General Manager at a water/sewer system with roughly 1,200 connections, leading to his penultimate position as a Rural Development Specialist at Rural Water Association for four years in California.
When asked about his favorite part about working in the RCAP Network, John responded, “being able to help rural communities develop the skills to be more self-sufficient, and mentoring other TAPs.”
Thank you, John, for all of the hard work and dedication you’ve shown to improve rural quality of life, starting at the tap.
