MWCA Executive Director
2021- present

Hello! My name is Bethannie Croxford. I was born and raised in Great Falls, MT. I have worked since I was 14 and moved to Havre in the summer of 2019 for a job opportunity. Going to school full time and working full time I realized that the job opportunity was not the right career path for me. I met my now fiancĂ© here in Havre and we have a wonderful home together. I love the outdoors, traveling, and animals. I have been looking for a career since I moved here and I cannot help but think that this is the best opportunity. Meeting Becky, thanks to Terry Turner, we all felt that it all was meant to be. I really look forward to working as the Executive Director of the Montana Weed Control Association and working with you all. I hope to be here and work for MWCA for a long time to come.

MWCA Membership & Technology Assistant
2018-present


Kara has been working in the Centennial Valley of rural Montana for five seasons. She has worked her way up from an AmeriCorps Member to Community Organizer and currently as the Executive Coordinator. Her position in the Centennial Valley has challenged her to learn and implement various management skills, including managing staff, working on multiple projects at one time, managing various databases (in Microsoft Access and Excel), and co-creating and managing the organizational website, created on Drupal software. She has also provided consistent, extensive and quality outreach with landowners, partners and the community, rebuilding community communication and trust.
In addition to organizational management, she has been instrumental in reestablishing and maintaining an active membership within the CVA. She has developed membership dues drives, maintained consistent contact with members via email and mailings, and generated thank you notes for each member. Her enthusiasm, drive, and passion to keep members and supporters engaged in programs, projects and the organization will benefit the membership of the MWCA.
