Each Conservation District in Wyoming is governed by a 5 member Board of Supervisors. Supervisors are local residents, elected by local citizens to address the local natural resource needs that are unique to the District they serve.
SCCD BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Emerson Scott, III
Anyone that is able to vote is eligible to serve as a Conservation District Supervisor. Supervisors are elected by Sheridan County citizens on the the general election ballot (non-partisan). Once elected, Supervisors serve 4 year terms on the Board. Prospective candidates must meet the residency requirements for their position for the duration of the term. By statute; three positions are rural, one is urban, and one is at-large:
Urban—must reside in an incorporated municipality (Sheridan, Ranchester, Dayton, Clearmont);
Rural—must reside within Sheridan County and outside of an incorporated area; and
At-Large—may reside anywhere within Sheridan County.
Conservation District Supervisors serve as advocates for the local conservation program. In addition to monthly Board meetings and regional and state meetings, Supervisors are encouraged to participate in other local meetings and partner updates, outreach events and to assist with field activities.
