Who We Are

The Vermont Association of Conservation Districts (VACD) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1995 formed to conduct educational, scientific, charitable work concerning conservation, maintenance, improvement and development and use of land, soil, water, trees, vegetation, fish and wildlife and other natural resources in Vermont.

The voting members of the association  are the 14 Natural Resource Conservation Districts (NRCDs) in the State of Vermont.  Conservation Distrists were established in 1939 as under the Soil and Conservation Act # 246.  Please see the Districts tab of this website for a complete listing of Districts for more information about them and their programs.

The VACD Board of Directors consists of one member from each Natural Resource Conservation District.  Officers of VACD are President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary and are elected for two year terms.  They perform customary duties of these offices in other organizations.

The Executive Committee is made up of the Officers and the Immediate Past VACD President.  The Committee holds meetings  monthly or more often to conduct necessary policy development, budgets, business oversight and review of programs and activities of VACD.   

The Executive Director is responsible for strategy, planning, communications and operational managment of VACD membership activities and technical programs.
