Serving on the KCD Board of Supervisors
Do you have a passion for local food, healthy forests, and clean water? Do you enjoy volunteerism and contributing to your community? Since 1949, KCD has helped the citizens of King County steward natural resources.
KCD is led by an all-volunteer, five-member Board of Supervisors. Three of those supervisors are elected by voters and two are appointed by the Washington Conservation Commission, an agency created to assist and guide the conservation district activities in Washington State. Each Supervisor has a term that lasts three years.
Serving on the Board of Supervisors takes commitment and time. The Board meets a minimum of once per month and helps set policy and direction. Regular board meetings take place at 5:00 pm on the second Monday of every month. Additional participation in Special Board Meetings or Committee Meetings is often part of a board position. Board members spend about ten hours a month supporting and guiding KCD.
Who is eligible to run for election or appointment to the KCD Board of Supervisors?
To apply for the open position on KCD’s Board of Supervisors, you must first meet the following requirements:
- Must be a registered voter in King County
- Must reside within the boundaries of the King Conservation District
- Includes all of King County except the following cities: Enumclaw, Federal Way, Skykomish, Milton, and Pacific
- Select Board of Supervisor seats may require the candidate to own property in King County
In addition to the requirements above, all applicants must submit the proper application forms to KCD by the candidate filing deadline.
What forms do I need to submit for an elected position?
