OPENINGS ON BOARD OF SUPERVISORS  

Clallam Conservation District is pleased to announce an opportunity to contribute to conservation and your community by serving on the Board of Supervisors.  Supervisors are public officials who identify local conservation needs, set priorities, and oversee the implementation of plans to protect soil, water, wildlife, and other renewable natural resources. Five members comprise the Board, each serving a three-year term without compensation. Three of the five Supervisors are elected by registered Clallam County voters, and the other two are appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission.
        The elected three-year term of office presently held by Donald Hatler and the appointed three-year term of Ben Smith both expire in 2018.
        Anyone residing in and registered to vote in Clallam County is eligible to run for elected positions of Conservation District Supervisor.  Interested candidates must submit the Candidate Information for the Office of Elected Supervisor form to the Clallam Conservation District by the candidate filing deadline of 4:00 pm on February 13, 2018.  To be listed on the election ballot, the Nominating Petition for the Office of Elected Supervisor form, signed by 25 or more registered Clallam County voters, must also be submitted by the filing deadline.
        To be considered for appointment to the Board of Supervisors, an Appointed Supervisor Application form must be submitted online with the Washington State Conservation Commission no later than March 31, 2018.
        Election procedures, forms, and information about the responsibilities and obligations of District Supervisors may be obtained at the Clallam Conservation District office or on the Washington State Conservation Commission website.  You may also click here for more information on the function of conservation districts and the role of Supervisors.

RENEWABLE RESOURCES PROGRAM (Long-Range Plan) UPDATE

As required by state law (RCW 89.08.220), every five years we re-evaluate the renewable resource concerns of our district and identify and prioritize actions to address the concerns.
        We are in the midst of drafting and reviewing updates to our current five-year plan (2013 Renewable Resource Program). We have updated our resource inventory to reflect the current situation in Clallam County. This 2017 Resource Inventory provides the background for the 2018 Renewable Resource Program update.   
        Our 2018 Annual Plan of Work & Budget was approved at the January 9, 2018 board meeting. View our Annual Work Plan Report to see what we accomplished in 2016.
