District Board Members:

The Conservation District Board meets at 7:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of every month at the Conservation District Office. These meetings are open to the public.

An annual meeting is required by law and conducted in February each year to give a public financial statement and accounting of the accomplishments of the Sedgwick County Conservation District for the previous year. The law also requires election of new supervisors or re-election of the one(s) whose terms have expired. It is also an opportunity to recognize and award the local landowners for special efforts to protect the soil and conserve water in Sedgwick County.
