Conservation districts capabilities are expanded by Associate Directors. Associate Directors are appointed by the board and they do not vote on board decisions. However, they can augment the board’s knowledge and experience level as well as assist with programs and activities. An Associate Director serves until January 1 in odd numbered years. Every two years, district boards should re-appoint those directors who are interested in continuing and who have contributed sufficiently to the district’s conservation efforts.
If you are interested in becoming an associate director, you must attend 3 board meetings.
