Prior to her recent retirement, Dillenbeck worked as a commercial account manager at Robertson Ryan & Associates.

“While much of her nonprofit work has focused on social services, the well-being of this community on every level is important to her,” says MVC executive director Carol Abrahamzon. “Sue is a true leader, and the Conservancy as well as the community are fortunate to have her working for a better place for all.”

Dillenbeck expresses gratitude for local landowners and communities working to preserve and protect landscapes, farmlands and habitats, efforts she says give her “hope for the future.”

“Challenges to the Conservancy are in some ways similar to those faced by any nonprofit — endless work to be done, along with financial constraints,” Dillenbeck says. “Climate change and encroaching developments add extra urgency to our mission, but if there is any organization up to the challenge, it’s Mississippi Valley Conservancy.”
