CONSERVATION DISTRICT ELECTIONS & APPOINTMENTS
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 Clallam Conservation District Board of Supervisors plans to adopt a resolution setting the date, time, and location of an election to fill the expiring term of Joseph Murray during the regular monthly Board meeting scheduled for 3:00 pm on December 8, 2015 at the district's office in Armory Square, 228 W. First St., Suite H, Port Angeles.
In addition to the elected position, the appointed term presently held by Matt Heins expires this spring. To be considered for appointment to the Board of Supervisors, an application form must be received by the Washington State Conservation Commission no later than March 31, 2016.
