Regional Managers

SCC “Regional Managers” are assigned to work with conservation districts in areas across the state. Regional managers’ in-depth knowledge of local and state issues helps them assist conservation districts with several topics, including:

  • Conservation program planning, implementation, and monitoring
  • District operations, such as accounting/auditing procedures, elections procedures, and board member orientations.
  • Project management (annual and long-range work plans)
  • Coordination of district projects/programs with other local, state, federal, and tribal partners.
