Conservation District Supervisors are volunteers who serve 3-year terms without financial compensation, other than reimbursement for expenses like mileage to board meetings. State law requires that at least three members of the board must be land owners or farm operators within the district. Three members of each district board are elected by registered voters within the district, and two members are appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission.
