Nominating organizations play an important role in the selection of Conservation District Directors. Annually the County of Blair contacts the nominating organizations (who are approved by the State Conservation Commission) to solicit candidates for appointments to fill expiring or vacant terms. Interested groups that would like to participate in the nomination process should contact the district for more information regarding the criteria and approval process for nominating organizations.
