The TJSWCD Board is made up of twelve Directors.  Ten of those Directors are elected from a non-partisan slate in the general election process (two from each of the five localities in the District).  Two Directors are appointed by the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board, one an At-Large member and one from the Virginia Cooperative Extension office.  Directors serve four-year terms.

The TJSWCD welcomes residents from Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa, Nelson, or Charlottesville to serve as Associate Directors. We encourage individuals that are interested in becoming an Associate or Director to attend one of our upcoming meetings and/or to contact District Manager Anne Coates (anne.coates [@] tjswcd.org or 434-975-0224, x100) or Board Chair Tom Pratley (tom.pratley [@] tjswcd.org).

The Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District (TJSWCD) has one opening for a Director for the City of Charlottesville and is recruiting candidates to fill this unexpired term ending December 31, 2024. Interested candidates must reside within the City of Charlottesville. Please complete the SWCD Director Information Form and submit with a letter of interest to Board Chair Tom Pratley (tom.pratley [@] tjswcd.org) by July 24, 2020.
