Board of Supervisors

The King Conservation District is led by an all-volunteer, five-member board of supervisors. Three of the members are elected while the other two are appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission, an agency created to assist and guide conservation district activities in Washington State. King Conservation District elections occur annually during the first quarter of each year. Elections are conducted pursuant to guidelines established by RCW 89.08 with oversight from the Washington State Conservation Commission.

Board members contribute local perspectives on important natural resource management and conservation issues, seek feedback about conservation programs from District residents, set District policy, and direct the District work plan and budget.
