Board Meetings

Our Board Meetings take place at least once a month, generally on the first Monday of the month. Occasionally special sessions are also called to resolve additional items or unforeseen events. All meetings are open to the public, with the exception of occasional Executive Sessions.

Board meetings cover the general business of East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, while also convening to decide the next steps the District will take in overall operations or within specific programs. Board meetings often follow special committee meetings, which are detailed in the Committees page.
