Changes to Board of Directors Announced

January 31, 2011

Edmonton- In the spirit of good governance and continued impartiality, Rural Alberta Development Fund is announcing the voluntary resignation of Mr. Glenn Taylor as Chair of the Board.

"Mr. Taylor has informed the Board that he is giving serious thought to seeking the leadership of the new Alberta Party, and the Board compliments him on being proactive in resigning his role as Chair to prevent any perceived conflict of interest," confirms Brad Ferguson, Managing Director for Rural Alberta Development Fund.

Rural Alberta Development Fund is an independent non-profit company focused on stimulating innovative projects throughout rural Alberta. The company is stewarded by a governance Board representing all corners of the province. The Board accepted Mr. Taylor's decision to resign as Chair while remaining as a Member of the Board, which affirms the values of this independent organization.

Mr. Taylor states, "Although I remain a true champion for rural Albertans, I am an equal champion for good governance. Resigning as Chair ensures the position is never used, or perceived to be used, for personal or political gain. It is simply the right thing to do at this time."
