Willis has been a regular at the CIRB annual meeting over the past four years he has served as RMA administrator, but this year was much more relaxing for him. “Obviously, I’m not the administrator anymore, so it was fun to come and visit with the people I used to work with over the past four years,” he said. He’s preparing to move back to the family ranch in northern Utah. Interview with past RMA administrator Brandon Willis
