Board of Supervisors

SWCD Board Supervisors play an important role in determining how soil and water resources are managed within the county.  They work cooperatively with local, state, and federal partners to establish soil and water conservation policy. SWCD’s serve as a focal point for identifying and addressing natural resource issues. They are elected or appointed to serve 4 year terms.

Supervisors meet monthly in Virginia to discuss the business of the SWCD, including state grant allocations to landowners, district conservation priorities, coordination with other local units of government and state agencies, and legislative priorities. Supervisors do not receive a salary, although they do receive $75 in compensation for attending meetings and are reimbursed for related expenses.

Terms for nomination districts 2, 4 and 5 expire on 12/31/2020. Terms for nomination districts 1 and 3 expire on 12/31/2021.
