The Clinton Conservation District has five Directors who are elected at the District’s annual meeting. Terms of office are four years. The Directors elect a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson and Treasurer from among their members.
Regular meetings of the Board of Directors are generally on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 8:30 am at the Clinton Conservation District Office. All meetings of the Board of Directors are open to the public.
Members of the Board of Directors may be contacted through the Clinton Conservation District Office by calling (989) 224-3720 x3, or via email.
As locally elected public officials, the directors are responsible for the operation and management of the conservation district. They develop policy, which is carried out by employees and resource personnel available to the district.
An Executive Director is appointed by the Board of Directors. He or she executes the plan of work approved by the Board of Directors, provides service to the public, implements programs, and seeks funding opportunities.
To be a candidate for the Board of Directors, a person must be a resident of Clinton County, Michigan, eighteen years of age or older, eligible to vote, and must file a petition with the Clinton Conservation District Office no later than 60 days prior to the election. Elections are held at the end of March. Petition forms are available from the District Office.
