More Info:

Ohio’s 88 soil and water conservation districts are led by five local board members who are the key to the success of the district. These selfless volunteers serve three-year terms and provide leadership and motivation to the SWCD staff. The election of board members, conducted annually by the Ohio Soil & Water Conservation Commission in accordance with Chapter 940 of the Ohio Revised Code, remains a vital part of the fabric of the SWCD mission. Because the SWCD is a government entity, these board members are public officials, following the same rules and guidelines as those elected during general elections.
