77 Years of Putting Conservation on the Ground

Never to be outdone.

The SWCD Board of directors enlists the help of several valuable Associate Directors.  Their role includes giving valuable input to the directors, assisting with the many committees which the district utilizes, and learning the ropes to possibly become a director one day.  We currently have three Associate Directors.  They are:

Brad Young

Dick Lyons

Dan Eck

No wallflowers here.

The SWCD Board is made up of five (5) elected directors who each serve two-year terms.  Elections are held annually, with two (2) directors being elected in odd numbered years and three (3) being elected in even numbered years.  The current elected directors are:

Ken Suslee, Chairman
