Learn About Board Governance


Michigan's Conservation Districts are locally controlled resource management agencies with oversight by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. Like other Michigan Conservation Districts, Genesee Conservation District is governed by a local, publicly-elected, five member board serving four year terms. For organizational continuity, Board Director elections are staggered. The qualifications for becoming a Board Director are to be at least 18 years of age and a resident Genesee County. Board members should have a passion for natural resources conservation. Board participation includes monthly meetings and involvement at events. The Board receives no compensation. The next Board Director public election will be held in March 2021. One 1year position will be up for election. Genesee County residents of legal age may vote at the election or by absentee ballot. An absentee ballot may be obtained in person at the District office or by phone during regular business hours.
