Staff & Directors

The Board of Directors consists of: five farmer directors who derive a major portion of their livelihood from farming or forestry; three public directors; and a County Commissioner.

Directors are appointed by the County Commissioners to 4-year terms. They serve as volunteers to review conservation related issues in our county and are reimbursed for travel expenses only. The Board of Directors meet monthly on the third Thursday.
