Conservation Districts are local units of government with elected boards of seven directors. Five directors are elected from specific zones (see map below or view a Google map of director zones) and two directors are elected “at large” from anywhere in the District. Directors serve four-year terms. Board officers occupy four positions: the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.
