Nevada Assocation of Conservation Districts

The Nevada Association of Conservation Districts (NvACD) is a non-profit, nongovernmental organization of the 28 CDs in Nevada. NvACD is made up of three regional area associations of CDs and serves as a state voice for conservation districts on state policy, legislation, communication, and funding for conservation activities. NvACD can lobby, unlike CDs or the State Conservation Commission. It also provides forums to inform, train and educate supervisors and recognize outstanding district individuals and programs. It has standing committees and meets annually around Election Day. It is not subject to the Open Meeting Law.
