The Minnesota Women Business Owners Hall of Fame honors and recognizes Minnesota's female entrepreneurs and their advocates who have made significant and enduring contributions to impact women's entrepreneurial development in Minnesota. The official induction ceremony took place at Cargill World Headquarters and featured Roshini Rajkumar as the master of ceremonies.

Belva joined the Northeast Bank Board of Directors in 1986. On April 1, 1987, she accepted a position working for the Bank's Holding Company. She worked closely with her husband, Walter, until he passed in 1991. At that time, she became the Chair of the Board, a title which she holds today.

In addition to her responsibilities as Chair of Northeast Bank, Belva also heads up the Walter C. Rasmussen-Northeast Bank Foundation, which donated funds to local non-profits. Her passion and resolve to improve our communities have led her to receive recognition from the Greater Twin Cities United Way, the City of Minneapolis and the East Side Exchange Club, in addition to many awards bestowed upon the bank for the company's philanthropic efforts.
