Board Supervisor 

Elections and Appointments

What is a Board Supervisor?

Each Conservation District in Washington is governed by a board of five members, referred to as “supervisors.” Three supervisors are elected locally by the public. Two are appointed by the Conservation Commission. At least two of the elected and one of the appointed supervisors must be local landowners or operators of a farm. The term of office is three years. Supervisors serve without compensation — they are volunteers. For more information regarding election and appointment candidate forms  and/ or deadlines, please contact the district by phone:(509)447-1155, email: davidm@pocd.org, or in person at 121 N. Washington Ave. Newport, WA 99156. Information is also available online HERE:
