Local leadership is the cornerstone of Indiana conservation efforts. The IASWCD Board of Directors works to govern the IASWCD in a manner that respectfully represents and responds to local SWCD needs, concerns, and interests. The Board roster is listed below.

The IASWCD Board is comprised of 13 SWCD Supervisors (see below) from all regions of the state. The association has 13 voting members (eight region representatives, four officers, and the past president) as well as non-voting representatives from the Indiana District Employees Association and the National Association of Conservation Districts.

Since Indiana’s conservation Districts are structured for local leadership, committees at all levels address natural resource education, forestry, and wildlife, soil and water resources, District operations, marketing, ways and means, and legislative issues.
