A district supervisor for the SWCD is elected to represent the citizens of the county in carrying out a good resource management program. The job of a supervisor is to:

* Establish sound policies and priorities concerning the work to be accomplished

* Meet at least monthly as a board, usually held the second Wednesday of each month, and participate in district activities

* Hire employees to carry out the daily work load of the District

* Manage all funds, facilities, and equipment belonging to the District

* Report to the public concerning resource conservation needs

The Van Wert SWCD plays a vital role in the agriculture community.  It demands the attention and leadership abilities of the supervisor. Although this is an unpaid position, the reward is the satisfaction of making a valuable contribution to the future welfare of the district, state, and nation.
