An excerpt from NACD President Tim Palmer:
I would like to emphasize what an honor it is to be president of the National Association of Conservation Districts. The locally-led, conservation mission is very much a part of who I am, and I could not be more humbled to have the opportunity to advocate for the individuals who make that mission a reality every day…As I look to the future ahead of us, I am pleased federal conservation funding is stable, holes in staffing are being filled, and we continue to explore new ways to provide a secure food supply while addressing natural resource concerns. During my time as president, I am confident NACD will continue to grow in ways that support conservation districts and the locally-led model by strengthening current relationships and developing new ones. My genuine hope is we can continue to provide districts with the tools and ability they need to conserve natural resources.
