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.

A Director Emeritus is an honorary, non-voting position appointed to serve as a non-voting member of the board. A Director Emeritus acts as an advisor to the board of directors, augmenting the board’s knowledge and experience. Selection of a Director Emeritus is based on the ability of the individual to enhance the board’s capabilities and effectiveness. The position is reserved for a person who previously served as a conservation district director in the United States or its territories where conservation districts exist.
