In October 2019, the SWCD Board of Directors formed several committees. These committees may propose policies or positions for board consideration and approval. The following are general descriptions of the scope of each board committee for 2021, along with the board members who comprise each committee. The board president chairs all committees except Finance, which is chaired by the Secretary-Treasurer.
The general manager, once hired, will provide staff support for all committees, including management and policy recommendations. SWCD’s consultants participate upon request of the committee chair or members.
