About Us

The Washington Association of Conservation Districts is a non-profit organization representing Washington’s 47 Conservation Districts, whose mission is to advance the purposes of Conservation Districts and their constituents by providing leadership, information, representation, products and services.

Specific goals of the WACD are accomplished through legislative activities, capacity building, and the work of numerous standing issue committees and task forces.


The Association is governed by five officers, 12 area directors, and the President of the Washington Association of District Employees.

Executive Board

The WACD Executive Board consists of these five elected officers: President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, WACD National Director, and immediate Past President. The Executive Board meets at least once a quarter.

Area Directors

Washington State’s 47 conservation districts belong to regional organizations called area associations. Each area association elects two area directors who serve on the WACD Board of Directors. The detailed knowledge and understanding of conservation districts brought to the Board by these 12 area directors helps assure WACD policies and actions remain on track throughout the year.

Area directors operate within the by-laws of WACD and according to the policies set by the Association. Each area director is elected by members in their area to serve a two-year term. Each area association meets at least annually.


The Executive Director carries out the day-to-day business of the Association. WACD is committed to maintaining effective working relationships with other state and national agencies and organizations who work with natural resource issues.
