Madison SWCD Board Seeks Candidates for Supervisor

The Madison Soil and Water Conservation District is seeking candidates for its Board of Supervisors for the 77th Annual Banquet and Election to be held on September 12th, 2024.

The Board of Supervisors guide the district, its staff, and cooperating agencies in efforts to implement conservation programs in the county that address the management and conservation of soil, water, and related resources.  Board members should have a sincere interest in conservation and must have the enthusiasm, dedication, and time to serve as elected officials. 

What a potential supervisor needs to know:

* Candidate must be over 18 years old and a resident of Madison County.

* This is a volunteer position and runs for 3-year terms.

* Board meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 a.m.

* Attendance at occasional outside meetings, events, or training is required.

Although serving as a SWCD supervisor takes time and energy, thousands of men and women have found the many rewards of serving far outweigh the sacrifices.  To learn more about the responsibilities and express an interest in becoming a candidate, call Julia Cumming, Program Administrator, at 740-852-4003.
