A respected community leader, elected by county residents to represent them in charting the course for local soil and water conservation and natural resource management.
District Boards of Supervisors guide the district, its staff, and cooperating agencies in efforts to implement a conservation program in the county that addresses management and conservation of soil, water, and related resources. Supervisors should have a sincere interest in conservation, and must have the enthusiasm, dedication, and time to serve expected of an elected official.
District supervisors are elected to a three-year term of office and serve without pay. Necessary expenses, e.g. travel to meetings, are covered by the SWCD.
Districts are protected from liability by a state law passed in 1988 which indemnifies all SWCD supervisors from personal liability in any civil actions arising from his/her involvement with the SWCD.
