Every year Lake SWCD holds a special election to elect supervisors to our board.

District Board Supervisors are respected conservation leaders elected by county residents to represent them in charting the course for soil and water conservation and natural resources management in their county. The Board, along with associate supervisors, serve together as a guide for the District, its staff and cooperating agencies in efforts to implement conservation plans which address the county's soil and water-related resources.

Board supervisors are elected to a three-year term as public officials and serve without pay.
