Our Board of Directors includes local residents, working together:
All soil and water conservation districts in Oregon are governed by a board of publicly elected officials. The Tualatin SWCD Board of Directors is composed of Washington County residents who work collaboratively with leadership to establish policy and develop strategies. These local residents act as a guiding body to ensure the conservation district works effectively toward its mission of protecting natural resources and creating a healthy, productive Washington County community.
Tualatin SWCD has seven board members – five members who represent specific geographic zones within Washington County and two who are elected “at-large” from anywhere in the district. These volunteer officials serve four-year terms. In Oregon, conservation district director elections occur every two years during the November general election (even-numbered years).
Current Board of Directors:
