Composter Association

Bernalillo County Extension Master Composters

At a meeting on October 30, 2010, master composters met to form an association whose purpose is to provide a structure for the support and maintenance of the Master Composter education program and its graduates. The name of the organization is Bernco Master Composter Association. At the meeting, we approved bylaws and elected a board of directors.

In October 20, 2011, we were granted 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. We are a nonprofit corporation and donations to BCEMC are tax-deductible.

Current board members are:

  • Patricia Barger, President
  • Judy Espinoza, Vice President
  • Carl Soderberg, Secretary
  • Sue Ellen Bartholomew, Treasurer
  • John Zarola, Immediate Past President
  • Rod Reay
  • Jana Hazelbaker
  • Rye Bailey

We are affiliated with the Bernalillo County Cooperative Extension Service.

If you'd like to support the association with a financial contribution, please see Donations.
