North Dakota Soil Conservation District Supervisors Handbook    
This handbook has been prepared to assist the soil conservation district supervisors with the in their work. The success or failure of a Soil Conservation District depends largely upon its Board of Supervisors. Recognizing this, the North Dakota State Soil Conservation Committee has developed this handbook to clarify the purposes and functions of a Soil Conservation District and the duties of a Supervisor.

A Soil Conservation District Supervisor holds a very responsible position. He is a member of a governing board, directing a legal subdivision of State government responsible to the legal voters of a District, with the power of taxation and the authority to formulate land use regulations.

As a Conservation District Supervisor, you will have many opportunities to help guide and develop conservation programs in your district, state and nation. You, your opinions and voice are needed and can make a difference. You and your fellow board members will be working at the "grass roots" level, the most important vantage point for identifying problems, finding solutions, developing and implementing programs.

Your conservation district board is charged by state law with specific responsibilities that no other agency is charged with and gives your district the necessary authority to carry them out.

We hope you will find the explanations and suggestions in this handbook helpful.
